MWNN has launched a new affinity group VANN, Volunteer Action Nonprofit Network – designed for Volunteer Program leaders who are building, implementing, or managing volunteer programs. Like our Lone Rangers affinity group, this will be a place to share issues, exchange ideas, discuss challenges and strategies and support each other. Each meeting will have a volunteer topic focus based on the needs and interests of the group.

We’re so pleased that Polly Mendoza, former Executive Director of Neighbor Brigade and lifelong volunteer and nonprofit leader has graciously agreed to facilitate this group.
Her passions and skills intersect in the areas of integrating equitable practices, managing, and leveraging volunteer corps, and innovative strategic planning. Polly worked with the Massachusetts Service Alliance and the MetroWest Nonprofit Network to complete the Service Enterprise training and successfully acquired certification for Neighbor Brigade.
