OUTREACH

The Virgin Islands Association of Georgia Outreach Program gives members the opportunity to get involved in community service on a regular basis. Projects are membership-led and are offered through the partnership with various nonprofit agencies like Hands on Atlanta, Amaiya Helping Hands, Atlanta Food Bank, and other groups throughout the community.

Members and non-members can sign up for projects at any time! Just send us an email with your area(s) of interest. If you would like to lead a project, please let us know that we can help with facilitation and support.

IN-REACH

The terms “in-reach” and “outreach” are sometimes used interchangeably. However, our in-reach service is designed to target our members only and not the community at large, as in outreach. It is an inwardly focused service where our primary goal is to serve our members and their families. So think about what skills you can offer (ex. plumbing, painting, childcare, lawn care, tutoring, home repairs, cleaning services, counseling, etc.) that you can be included as a resource. It is a great way to serve by using your talents and skills to give back. For those who may not have specialized skills and just want to help, great! We need you too. The more hands involved the stronger we will be as a community.

For those who require in-reach service, please let us know. We can help! We will reach out to our membership network and provide assistance in the area(s) of need. Send an email to: viassociationofga@gmail.com with the subject “In-reach request”. Someone will contact you to further discuss your needs.
