Key Skills Hub

Share and grow your skills


Share your Passion and Talents with Nonprofits

You have the expertise to help fill the gaps that nonprofits lack the resources to implement. Many nonprofits would welcome access to professional skills such as strategy, project management web development and graphic design. This work and more is essential to empowering a nonprofit to effectively deliver on their mission while helping you to enhance your skills and grow your professional network.

By volunteering on the Key Skills Hub, you can connect your passion to the causes you care about, while honing and developing your knowledge and skills at the same time. Whether volunteering for a project or even just getting on a phone call to provide expert advice, you are giving so much more than your time. You are creating deeper purpose and increasing the operational capacity of nonprofits that address the issue facing your neighborhood, Greater Philadelphia and the world beyond.
