New Fellows support in-house volunteer programs

The Challenge

The Community Action Learning (CAL) program is focused on developing opportunities for key talent to enrich leadership competencies, develop new skills, and engage more deeply with the company, community and each other.

Unique to the CAL program is the fact that these skills-based volunteer programs are managed internally by a John Hancock fellow.

The Solution

In managing all aspects of the volunteer program, the fellow takes on different responsibilities than s/he may encounter in day-to-day work.

Our Impact

The fellow commits 50% of his/her work time to manage nearly all aspects of the program, including volunteer recruitment, training and support, nonprofit project selection, project management and program refinement.

The first round of projects are already off to a fantastic start!
