Clarksville,TN Volunteers will be driven by a “Board of Directors” composed of citizens from all walks of life in the Clarksville, Montgomery County, TN area who will play an active role in developing the organization and its vision.

Bi-monthly “Volunteer Network” meetings will be held to facilitate the exchange of ideas, methods and best practices in the management of volunteers and to address mutual interests and concerns. The Volunteer network helps build and develop partnerships in the community through the sharing of resources. We are working together to enhance the profile and importance of community involvement.

Clarksville, TN Volunteers is also building a searchable web-database to find volunteer opportunities that fit citizen’s skills and experience. The website ClarksvilleTNVolunteers.com is hosted by Compu-Net Enterprises and is currently under construction.
