Hey fellow activists and organizers,
I want to thank all of you who made it to SoJust's 6th birthday party last
Thursday - such amazing energy! I can't believe we've grown to over 2100
members and hosted 130+ events since September 2006 - not bad for a
grassroots group funded by our generous members. Check out these great
photos <http://www.sojust.org/photos/10786742/> and book Leise Jones

*Skillshare: Effective Volunteer Engagement<http://www.sojust.org/events/78279732/>by Lori Tsurda
Monday, October 1 at 6PM - NonProfit Center by South Station*
How do we attract and engage motivated volunteers who will further our
charitable work? We will consider motivation, from the benefits of
volunteering, to our needs and the effort required to manage/support
volunteers. No prior knowledge expected - we'll start with fundamentals.
Participants will come away with a position description template and
strategic approaches for customized volunteer recruitment and engagement.

community that's been growing steadily since August 2006. We have over

progressive events and resources at www.sojust.org. If you've benefited
from this cross-issue progressive network please contribute the suggested
