CNC is excited to partner with the Cambridge Volunteer Clearinghouse on Cambridge Volunteer Week. Beginning with a kick-off volunteer workshop on April 16, the week will include neighborhood-based workshops for prospective volunteers, featuring local nonprofits (see schedule here). It will end with a board member recruitment fair on April 23 (more details to follow). If your organization is interested in presenting on your volunteer needs at a workshop, please contact Laurie Rothstein. Space is limited.
Right now, one primary area of CNC's focus is the 2020 Census. The stakes couldn't be higher. For the decade ahead, not only does it determine how many seats in the House of Representatives — and Electoral College votes — each state gets, it also impacts how billions per year of federal funding is invested in critical services like neighborhood improvements, public health, education, social services, and transportation.
Nonprofits are key to Cambridge's mission of counting every resident to secure a fair allocation of government resources. Please check out the City's Census website, with resources like city and federal census job applications, posters to print in many languages, and FAQs covering issues such as immigrant status and confidentiality.
