Give Back Memphis recruits volunteer consultants on an ongoing basis. The vetting process involves an interview with the prospective consultant and an application to learn more about their professional trajectory and interest in volunteering.
Consulting projects can range from three months to over a year. We have found that many times the consultant establishes a deep connection with their clients and continues to make themselves available well beyond the original project timeline. On average a consultant can expect to spend 10-20 hours each month on a project. Twice a year consultants meet to help improve Give Back Memphis’ processes and offerings and to share experiences. We have found that consultants often establish a deep connection with their clients and continue to make themselves available.
