nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
If your nonprofit is looking for steady help during the academic year, especially with tasks that are difficult to find consistent volunteers for, Quinnipiac University is a great resource. It runs an Off-Campus Work Study program which places students at area non-profits. The nonprofit pays a very small share of the salary- it's something like $2.62/hour. We at IRIS have participated for the last few years, and have overall been extremely pleased with the caliber of the students who work here. They are able to work about 8-9 hours/week during the academic year. You get to read students' applications and interview as many as you want, and then you decide which one(s) you want to hire.
This year they have plenty of positions that work with kids directly so they aren't taking any more of those, but you can post a position for administrative help or pretty much anything else. Last year IRIS had 4 students working as receptionist/admin support; development assistant; housing & donations (setting up apartments for refugees); and employment services (helping refugees find jobs).
