Founded in 2003 by a group of professionals looking to volunteer their professional skills to serve non-profits, Jericho Road Project’s (JRP) mission is “to bridge communities by matching the professional talents of volunteers with the needs of community-based non-profit organizations and businesses to promote community development, strengthen social services and enrich the lives of volunteers.”
JRP has three distinct programs:
1. Skill-Based Volunteers. JRP provides skill-based volunteers in diverse areas such as strategic planning, technology, marketing, et al. and offers project-based, pro bonoservices to non-profits in the community with the goal of sustainability and capacity building.
2. Replicating the JRP model. JRP seeks to expand its skill-based volunteer model through a proven, three-phased process which incubates, helps launch and supports on an on-going basis, independent affiliate sites. Replicated sites in Massachusetts include Lowell, Worcester, Lynn, Lawrence, and Roxbury. Nationally, affiliated sites include Jericho Road Pasadena and Jericho Road Dallas.
3. The Leadership Connection. The Leadership Connection program trains and places corporate executives on non-profit boards. These trained corporate volunteers go on to expand and accelerate their leadership skills and professional networks while making rewarding contributions to non-profit leadership and helping improve the quality of life in underserved communities.
