Flexible Human Resources Support

Project Details

What We Need
  • Ongoing HR support for 10-15 hours over the course of 4 weeks
  • Support may include: hiring, compensation & benefits, HR policy & procedure, performance management, and/or workplace culture
  • Note: We devised this project to connect nonprofits and volunteers for more flexible, more immediate impact. We strongly suggest you start with 4 weeks and decide from there if you'd like to continue working. For this project, we also recommend working with a volunteer who is knowledgeable about the Organization's state policies
Additional Details

Hello! We are looking for ongoing support as we consider changing our benefits package for employees, and changing some contractor positions to employees.
We have 7 full-time regular employees and have several temporary/seasonal hourly employees. We are based in Minnesota, so knowledge of our state laws would be crucial. Happy to provide more information!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have information on our current benefits package, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an employee handbook, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $1,955 , allowing us to dedicate resources to our youth programs.

Keeping employees happy and healthy with great benefits will keep our programming strong!

Project Plan

Prep: Information Sharing & Goal Setting
  • Volunteer Manager provides an outline of current state of Human Resource knowledge at the organization
  • Volunteer Manager provides overview of ongoing HR needs they have over the next 2-4 weeks
  • Volunteer and Volunteer Manager align on the scope of ongoing support that the Volunteer will provide to address this need
Step 1: Ongoing Support
  • Volunteer delivers ongoing support according to determined outline
  • Weekly check-ins to ensure support is being offered as agreed upon by both parties
Step 2: Training & Offboarding
  • Volunteer provides any relevant training to the Volunteer Manager to help them continue work or answer their own questions, where appropriate, after 4 weeks

About The Org

Urban Boatbuilders, Inc.
Our Mission

It is the mission of Urban Boatbuilders to empower youth to succeed in work and life through woodworking and experiential learning.

What We Do

In 1995 a small group of community leaders saw an increased lack of opportunities for youth to learn and develop through hands-on activities, and thus formed the nonprofit Urban Boatbuilders. Since that time, this lack of hands-on opportunities has increased, along with youth unemployment rates and an increased emphasis on standardized testing in schools. Urban Boatbuilders seeks to address the gap this creates for youth to gain technical, social, and emotional skills that will prepare them to pursue their academic and vocational goals. Since Urban Boatbuilders was founded more than 20 years ago, the foundations of hands-on learning and skill-building have been used to create and continuously improve strong programs that help youth prepare themselves to pursue their own success in the modern world.
