What does opportunity mean to myImpact.org or to the communities they work in?
"At myImpact.org, we believe that opportunity means that every American who wants to serve can do so and find meaningful impact through their service. 1 in 3 volunteers this year will not return to their volunteer organization the next year- Millennials especially report that this is because they do not feel that their work is making a difference. With systemic problems plaguing our communities and nation as a whole, it is no longer acceptable to treat volunteers as free labor- they must be integral assets to solving any problem and within any organization."
