Youth INC is pleased to announce that we have been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise organization and hub! A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills throughout their organization to successfully deliver on its social mission. Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.
Youth INC completed an extensive assessment, over 20 hours of training and consulting and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in our day to day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, Youth INC is now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers and better meet our mission. Youth INC has certified 6 Nonprofit Partners on volunteer best practices in partnership with NYC Service and Points of Light Foundation.
