Episode 203 - Dignity & Respect Extends to Volunteers Too

Time + Talent Podcast

Government & Organization

Metrocrest Services in the greater Dallas Area provides food and support services to 600-800 clients a week. Food Pantry, Rides, Home Repair, Consignment Store, Ambassador - social media, represent MCS in the community. While they had a diverse clientele, volunteers came from the surrounding suburbs and didn’t reflect the diverse community they served. Brittni really wanted volunteers to better reflect the community as well as inspire the next generation of volunteers. The community is beginning to gentrify but there are still needs. Brittni shares her personal story to educate volunteers, and there’s no judgment - the ability to volunteer is equitable. Brittni treats everyone with dignity and respect and is shifting who a volunteer is. She has created opportunities for neurodiverse volunteers of all ages, court-ordered volunteers, intergenerational opportunities, and is actively recruiting Xennials.
