The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) is offering a grant and mentorship for REALTORS® who would like to expand their community service outreach through its Volunteering Works program.
Five Volunteering Works applicants will be selected to receive a year of one-on-one mentoring from a member of the Good Neighbor Society and a $1,000 grant as seed money to help implement improvements to their community program.
“REALTORS® value community and service,” said Ron Phipps, a 2001 recipient of the Good Neighbor Awards honorable mention. “The Volunteering Works program is just another example of how REALTORS® strive to strengthen and support their communities. It’s also a chance for REALTORS® to work together to find new ways to support those in need and expand their volunteer work.”
Recipients are selected based on their dedication to the community through volunteer work and the potential for their charitable work to be expanded or improved with the help of an expert mentor. Ideal candidates have been active in charity work, can identify specific challenges they would like to address, and have specific goals for the future of their community service project.
REALTORS® can learn more about the program or apply for the Volunteering Works program on NAR’s website. Deadline to apply is March 11.
