Catholic Charities

The Challenge

This respected organization boasted a solid base of volunteers, but it wanted to identify, formalize and enrich its family service options and provide tools to optimize the volunteer experience.

DGT’s Solution...

A thorough evaluation of existing and potential volunteer projects suitable for families:

  • Analyzed existing projects for family-friendliness and suggested modifications where feasible.
  • Worked with staff to identify new volunteer opportunities for families.
  • Created a handbook to better prepare families for their specific jobs.
  • Developed materials to encourage post-activity reflection among families.
  • Designed a family-oriented journal and web page.
Through the program enhancements and reflection materials DGT developed, service holds a lasting impact and real meaning for our family volunteers.”
