Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Dannon Thornton, Director of Community Engagement with Volunteer Odyssey, who highlights the volunteer center based in and built for Memphis that connects volunteers to their ideal volunteer experiences based on their interests, skills or neighborhood. The organization also provides the software that their nonprofit partners use to recruit volunteers and track their impact.
During the interview, Dannon talks about the evolution and impact of their efforts and the importance volunteerism plays to create effective nonprofits, empowered citizens and revitalized communities. She talks about the state of volunteerism in the Mid-South and how Volunteer Odyssey makes it easy to get involved, and then details their upcoming 10 Year Birthday Party and main event on April 15, 2023, which features opportunities to volunteer with different nonprofits around the city in the morning and then celebrate with a family-friendly event in the afternoon.
