Our Three Key Areas of Engagement:
Empowerment, Connection and Education
Our innovative digital portfolios (on-line interactive resumes) include photography, videography and written content to highlight strengths, abilities and talents. More engaging than a traditional paper resume, our digital portfolios are incredibly powerful tools for self-advocacy. Portfolios are hosted on individual websites and customized business cards are provided for sharing with community members and potential employers.

Integrate for Good sponsors weekly, community-based events where individuals with and without disabilities volunteer side-by-side on projects of shared interest, thereby reducing stigma, increasing community connection and expanding opportunities for social capital building. A full calendar of events is available on our website under “Events.” We also offer training and support to other nonprofit organizations to help expand the diversity of their volunteer staff.
While Integrate for Good engages people in a variety of volunteer activities, all of our efforts share one common goal: to build social networking opportunities and meaningful community connection. Research has established loneliness and social isolation to be public health concerns. People with disabilities experience these significant risks to physical and mental health at a disproportionate rate. By bringing diverse people together to do good work, we can creatively address the social determinants of health through inclusive volunteerism.
