One of the best parts of my job is being in constant communication with our third party organizers. A third party event is a fundraising initiative organized in support of a charity by individuals outside the organization. Nurturing and cultivating these relationships is so rewarding.
While in university, I ran a third party event in support of YACC for a few months. Even with the extensive support from HQ, there is still a lot of responsibility, a lot of time, and a lot of rewarding experiences. Organizing a third party event can be a lot of work, similar to a part-time job. You are responsible for organizing the event, recruiting participants, managing volunteers, and wrapping up the event afterwards. So, when I say “thank you,” I have the unique ability to truly and meaningfully express my full gratitude to these volunteers!
There are over 10 different third party events held by incredible volunteers in support of YACC each year.
