Capacity building is serving with a nonprofit organization to enhance or develop systems and materials that allow the organization to more effectively manage volunteers. Capacity building service focuses on enhancing the organization's ability to recruit, manage and retain volunteers. Apart from recruiting, training and/or managing volunteers, all capacity building members will be involved with at least three capacity building activities related to volunteers: Developing a volunteer generation plan, developing formal partnerships for volunteer recruitment, establishing a volunteer program, and other similar effective volunteer management practices.
CHSL has partnerships with The Boys and Girls Club of Weld County, the Global Refugee Center, the Creative Communities and the Poudre Learning Center.
