Our volunteers lend their expertise, time and talent to help our local small businesses grow and thrive!
You can join us in many ways:
Technical assistance providers offer advice and training in specific areas that most benefit a small business owner such as: Marketing, Web Design, Social Media, inventory control, bookkeeping, Legal, Insurance or HR issues, and more.
Meet your match and be a business mentor! Qualified mentors are experienced business owners themselves, and are paired with a new small business owner to provide ongoing advice on business planning, marketing, tried-and-true tips for making a small business work, day-to-day. Mentorship is an integral part of many of our programs, especially Enterprising Women! and Tech Tips and Training for small biz.
General volunteers work with Urban Solutions staff on events, administrative tasks, and more. We are a lot of fun, and we love our volunteers, so come spend some time with us!
Many hands make light work! Does your company or organization have a Day of Service, or a regular volunteer opportunity? If so, we’ve got ideas! Please email us with details, and we will find a great fit! Please include:

any specific project interests (i.e. gardening, painting, or carpentry, etc.)
any tasks or projects that would not work for your group (i.e. no painting)
Recent groups have spent a day focused on cleaning up storefront facades on 6th Street.
