Human Resources services are essential to the success of nonprofits. However, many nonprofits lack the capacity, resources, and knowledge to provide these services to assist their staffs and help achieve their missions. You can help by contributing your human resources skills and experience to help boost the capacity of local nonprofits while also enhancing your own consulting skills.
