Member Development

  1. NetDay created TechBridge to train members in the skills they need to make a difference with technology at schools and in their community: education concepts, technology resources appropriate for schools, citizenship, and mentoring.

  2. All members received training in conflict resolution, problem solving, teamwork, diversity awareness, and planning for life after their volunteer service.

  3. All members put their training in civic responsibility to use by conducting a needs assessment of their local communities and developing programs to address issues.
 

Strengthening Communities

  1. By strengthening communities, NetDay programs have a multiplier effect and build the foundation for sustainability.

  2. Members and staff have nurtured more than 60 partnerships with community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and other AmeriCorps programs to share resources and activities.

  3. Members planned community service activities on national days of service to strengthen partnerships and engage more than 800 adult and youth volunteers.
