Mission: One Brick provides support to local non-profit and community organizations by creating a unique, social and flexible volunteer environment for those interested in making a concrete difference in the community. We enable people to get involved, have an impact and have fun, without the requirements of individual long-term commitments.
Target demographics: Individuals who need flexibility in their time commitment
Geographic areas served: Philadelphia and the surrounding area
Programs: One Brick brings volunteers together to support other non-profit organizations by adopting an innovative twist to the volunteer experience: we create a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering, and after each volunteer event, we invite volunteers to gather at a local restaurant or cafe where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting.
Our 'commitment-free volunteering' allows you to choose when you volunteer, rather than having to make commitments for a certain number of volunteer hours, or agree to be available every week at a specific time.
I have been volunteering with One Brick Philly for three years. The Board and Event Managers are a reliable group of people who volunteer because they believe that they can make a difference. It is so easy to get involved! You just sign up on the website, RSVP for an event, and show up. Afterwards, we sometimes go out to get a drink or a bite to eat. This is an inclusive group, and there are a lot of different kinds of event activities to volunteer for. They work with local non-profits to do everything from nature cleanups to helping at street festivals to serving meals in homeless shelters. I love One Brick!
