Transforming Disruption to Impact is a collection of voices that sing a powerful, poignant song: The lyrics tell us that, yes, our world has been dramatically disrupted . . . but we have within our reach the tools, the techniques, the principles, the practices, and the people who will show us how to transform this disruption into something positive and enduring. Service to others is what binds us together as humans; it is what propels us forward, even (perhaps especially) through the darkest times. This book reminds us that our darkest moments can eventually create the brightest light—again, through service to each other and to our communities. This book is what the world needs, precisely when the world needs it.”

“The pandemic brought us face-to-face with an inevitable conclusion: volunteer engagement is a vital strategy for organizational sustainability, especially during times of disruption. Spotlighting organizations that had the courage to take novel approaches—engaging community members in innovative ways and delivering on their missions by providing critical new services and scalable solutions to boot—Transforming Disruption to Impact offers inspiration for achieving a deeper, more meaningful impact and the impetus to keep evolving now and during any times of unsettling change.”

—Karen Reid, CVA, CEO, Kaber Communications; leadership team member, The National Alliance for Volunteer Engagement
