The goal of ConnectMichigan Alliance (CMA) and its partners is to make a quality volunteer opportunity available for every Michigan resident through universal access and volunteer support infrastructure, where we live, work, and learn. To that end, CMA is developing an evaluation system to ensure universal access for Michigan's residents to quality opportunities to serve in their community. CERC is working with CMA and other partners to evaluate the infrastructure support system for volunteer-serving organizations and to facilitate the collaborative development of an evaluation system that these organizations can use to monitor outcomes.
