The Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley partners with local employers to host Intern Impact Day. Each year the Volunteer Center coordinates an impactful day of education and connections centered on serving the nonprofit community.
For 2021, our event will again be a virtual 90-minute program focused on understanding the nonprofit landscape, national infrastructure, and skills-based volunteering.

The program will also include representatives from 8-10 local nonprofits representing their national organization. The goal of these connections is to meet the interns where they are and to encourage them to engage and connect locally.
Attracting and retaining talent for major companies is key and helping the interns to have an increased sense of community with new connections and friends can be a decisive factor in staying in the Lehigh Valley.
