how we work
We are a small but mighty team. We work incredibly hard to make volunteer opportunities accessible to all and to put Memphis on the map for service. In short, we want to make Memphis as known for volunteerism as it is for barbecue. We do this by focusing on high quality volunteer experiences and supporting our nonprofit partners as robustly as possible.
In the Volunteer Odyssey office, we value collaboration, transparency, diversity, and those with a growth mindset who embrace continuous improvement. We value the whole person and the unique skills and talents each person contributes to the team. We believe that the sum is greater than the parts and that an effective team is a win-win for everyone. We host team retreats, team building-activities, and regular group volunteer experiences. We invest in growth, training, and development for everyone in our organization.
