Engage AR Day of Service


We've set a BIG goal to engage 150 volunteers in a day of service as part of the EngageAR Conference on April 21, 2018!

Service day volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in two service projects at a local nonprofit. The first half of the morning we will get our hands dirty assisting with tasks that will improve capacity and client experience at one of three local nonprofits. The second half of the service day will allow participants to share their skills, experience, and expertise as we work through a local issue or community problem. We will return to the Embassy Hotel for lunch and a closing session to wrap up the conference.

This will be a great opportunity for networking, learning, and giving back. We hope you'll join us!
