Day of Service

Join NTEN’s annual tradition of giving back by participating in the Nonprofit Technology Conference Day of Service. Day of Service participants take part in volunteer activities to support local area nonprofits. It’s a terrific way to experience the San Jose area, help out local organizations, and get to know other NTC attendees.

The Day of Service is an ideal opportunity for those who are new to the NTC or who appreciate meeting people in smaller groups. Think of it as a chance to make a conference buddy!

Service projects are all either within walking distance of, or a ~30 minute commute away from, the Convention Center. Participants will gather and travel together. NTEN staff will provide snacks, public transportation tickets, and maps; you bring the energy and enthusiasm.

The deadline to sign-up for the 16NTC Day of Service has passed. Contact with questions.
