Jericho Road Roxbury is an exciting, new initiative designed to partner the professional talents of volunteers with the specific needs of established non-profit organizations that serve greater Roxbury. This model promotes community development, strengthens social services, and enriches the lives of everyone involved.
Jericho Road Roxbury is built on the national Jericho Road Project model with a proven track record in Lowell, Lawrence and Worcester, and in Pasadena, CA. The Director personally interviews nonprofits and volunteers in order to create successful, strategic matches. She helps nonprofits define short-term projects and volunteers understand the scope of service. This high-touch model includes support throughout the project, periodic training and evaluations once the project is done. During the first year of operation, Jericho Road Roxbury has successfully matched volunteers to non-profit organizations, including:
- transitioning a database for a youth program
- redesigning a website for an adult education organization
- developing financial templates for a community coalition
- re-evaluating the mission and vision for a food sustainability organization.
Jericho Road Roxbury needs you! We rely on the volunteer efforts of our skilled pro-fessionals and generous donors. Please consider volunteering your time, energy, and/or finan-cial resources to this valuable mission.
Jericho Road Roxbury is a program of the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry
