Become an Investment Volunteer with United Way of Greater Atlanta!
Did you know that of the 1.3 million children living in Greater Atlanta, nearly half a million live in communities with low child well-being? Through United Way of Greater Atlanta’s Child Well-Being Agenda, we’re looking to change that.
Over the next ten years, we want to permanently improve the well-being of 250,000 children in our community. And we can’t do it alone. We need volunteers like you! When you become an investment volunteer with United Way, you help us strategically guide investments so we can achieve our ambitious goals to help children, families and communities across Greater Atlanta. You can learn more about our strategies through the Child Well-Being Index.
Investment volunteers help United Way achieve our goals by participating on a team of trained individuals to:
- Review and assess program proposals for funding
- Make recommendations to guide investment decisions that support our Child Well-Being goals
Beginning in February, investment volunteers will participate in mandatory training (online and in-person modules). In March and April, volunteers will read program proposals and conduct site visits with agencies to discuss their funding proposals. And in late April/early May, volunteers will reconvene to share evaluation results, deliberate and form funding recommendations.
Volunteers are asked to commit a total of 18-26 hours between the months of February to May 2018. For more information, click here.
