Linking up not-for-profit organisations with certified project managers to work voluntarily on projects, the program provides a pool of volunteers with high- level project management skills that not- for-profits can tap into. "While 12 per cent of volunteers are engaged at a level of their expertise, there is more we can be doing to encourage this further," said Volunteering ACT CEO Maureen Cane. " rough this program we are seeking to leverage the generosity of skilled Canberrans to ensure a sustainable future for all not-for-profits." Boost for ACT volunteering
