Volunteer Corner - in the Citizen

Check out this recent post from the Citizen featuring Community Volunteer Network (originally posted at on May 21, 2010 - reposted here with permission from the editor):

"Brendan O’Connor’s volunteer efforts were honored in April at the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration, where O’Connor was recognized for his innovative leadership as 2009 chair of the Community Volunteer Network (CVN).

CVN is an active social network for young adults in their 20s and 30s who are dedicated to making a difference in Arlington through volunteering, building networks, socializing and developing leaders. As chairman, O’Connor grew the network by using collaborative technology and actively recruiting and training volunteer leaders. He launched new initiatives, including a partnership with the Committee of 100 and a new interactive blog. Board Member J. Walter Tejada, who launched CVN during his first term on the Board, presented the award.

Growing gardens and building leaders

CVN builds networks and leaders in our community through participation in recurring and onetime volunteer activities that foster strong relationships between young adult volunteers and community groups and nonprofit organizations. This spring a group of CVN volunteers joined students at Arlington Traditional Elementary School to work on the school’s garden.
