Community Counts Inc. original program was designed to support students by creating effective internship programs. Our Founder has determined that all students need an internship just like like one in the Medical Industry. Training interns on business skills are critical to success in life.
Originally our mission was to develop the most effective training- and internship for students. Our students were primarily placed in nonprofit organizations that matched their area of interest.
We now have two immediate needs in our nonprofit.
- We need to develop student teams. We will provide leadership training and each student will be given the responsibility to manage another nonprofit organization during our Fundraising with Flowers Program. Our event will launch on ” Small Business Saturday” Each organization will be assigned to a local retail store during that day. Our retailer will help encourage community members to Volunteer in the community.
- We need student/s to help us manage our office. We are accepting students that have a variety of skill sets. Basic Accounting, Social Media, IT skills. We hope to find one student that will work in our office. We are creating an office position will for someone who has exceptional administrate skills and enjoys office management. We are flexible and can work around students schedules. Our office administrator position will turn into a paid positions after our probationary period
- We partner with a variety of local nonprofit organiztion.
The most difficult challenge that nonprofit organizations face is raising money and obtaining volunteers.
Community Counts Inc. wants to address both of these issues at once.
We plan to match several nonprofit organization with local retail stores on Small Business Saturday. We want to recruit Volunteers for nonprofit organizations.
Small Business Saturday was started by American Express eight years ago. The purpose was to drive business into local retail stores.
According to the 2015 research done by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance for every $100.00 spent in a national chain outlet $14.00 stays in your neighborhood. And the same $100.00 spent in small business leaves a contribution of $48 to the community. That's a 71% increase. We want to make an effort to increase prosperity, and we need your help. Thank you.
