Qualified youth who need community service hours in order to graduate from high school can look to VIA for an assist. For example, VIA can match a high school student with parents needing babysitting services, community elders needing yard work, or a church needing the services of a landscaper.
A newly-formed accounting firm seeking to enhance its brand could offer to provide tax services to those in its VIA nonprofit community. Payment for such services by the recipient would then go to the charity through which the arrangement was made (i.e., the VIA nonprofit).
A copywriter who wants to increase her contact base could offer social media content marketing services to another small business owner in her participating VIA nonprofit community. Once again, payment for her services would benefit the VIA nonprofit through which the arrangement was made.
Other examples of services include, but are not limited to:
- yard work
- home repairs
- professional services (e.g., legal, accounting, and marketing)
