Nonprofit Spark – Engaging Miami volunteers: The Miami Dolphins Special Teams program – 04/25/11

The Miami Dolphins is the only NFL team to coordinate volunteers on behalf of nonprofits in the area. The Miami Dolphins Special Teams volunteer management program kicked off one year ago and to date, has enlisted 3,120 volunteers who’ve contributed 41,509 hours of community service. On this show, you’ll hear Adam Grossman, senior vice president of public affairs, describe why they started the program and what makes it effective. I also speak to Tina Silver, a Miami Dolphins Special Teams volunteer, who shares what the impact of the program has been on her.
