Volunteering as a Pathway to Employment Report

Volunteer Recognition Catholic Charities USA has expanded national recognition of volunteers in the Catholic Charities network. Each issue of Charities USA - the Catholic Charities network magazine – will spotlight a volunteer who serves in a capacity related to the theme of the issue. The Winter 2013 theme is serving the vulnerable in life (unborn, terminally ill, frail elderly, severly disabled, etc.) The deadline for this issue is November, 18. For more information on nominating a volunteer, email Matthew Price. Catholic Charities USA created an award certificate template for agencies to honor volunteers. This award certificate expresses gratitude from CCUSA CEO/President Fr. Larry Snyder on behalf of the entire network. To access the award certificate template, email Matthew Price. Resource Library The resources from the old Catholic Charities USA website have been moved over to a third party website - Scribd. Browse forms, policies and training materials. This morning, attendees from the VMN will be browsing the website identifying deficits in the library. A call for resources will be announced in October.
