It’s an exciting time for Douglas County Libraries (DCL)! The library district has been certified as a “Service Enterprise” by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service and founded by former President George H.W. Bush. As a member of the first cohort of organizations to be trained as a Service Enterprise in Colorado, DCL is the fifth organization in the state to receive this distinction and usage of the Service Enterprise certified seal.
High performing, Service Enterprise organizations commit to valuing volunteerism organization-wide, as part of a continuum of diverse community engagement. DCL sought this certification to more closely align their volunteers with their goals, and position themselves as an adaptable, sustainable and better resourced leader in the way they engage community members.
With this certification, DCL joins a prestigious group of nonprofits committed to excellence in volunteer engagement to drive positive change, improve lives, and strengthen the community.
