Volunteers “Jump" to Help Silicon Valley Foster Youth
Ask any nonprofit and they’ll tell you that volunteers are pivotal to carrying out their mission. Stretched thin by budgets and staff members who wear multiple hats, there isn’t a nonprofit out there who can make it without volunteer support. So, when Jump Associates located us with the help of Universal Giving, we knew we hit a home run.
Last month, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we hosted nearly 30 Jump Associates staff members who honored this day of service by helping us prepare for National Foster Care Month in May. Two hours later, and with many laughs in between, this wonderful bunch of caring community members hand-made more than 1,500 beautiful teal ribbon pins. Pivotal plans to use them this May to build awareness for foster youth in Santa Clara County.
Like so many companies in Silicon Valley, Jump Associates wants to invest in the community where they work and raise their families. This leading strategy and innovation consulting firm seeks to “transform lives through learning and growth.” We’re grateful they chose to serve Pivotal's community of high-school and college-aged foster youth.
There are many companies like Jump Associates who want to give back to their community. Universal Giving offers an invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to connect to vetted high-impact volunteer opportunities. Read about the brains behind this inspirational organization, Pamela Hawley, a true community service leader.
