    Yes and no. The volunteer opportunities advertised on the PMD web site and email list are geared for individual participants, not groups of them. Individuals must sign up themselves, and groups must have prior permission from PMD to advertise specific PMD volunteer opportunities to their members.

    PMD offers Corporate Partnerships for companies' and other groups' community involvement programs. Please contact PMD for sample projects and pricing.

    Corporate Partnerships involve one-time projects during business hours. PMD enables participants to work together as a team, enjoy a sense of accomplishment, and learn about and discuss topics of interest. With PMD's expert guidance, organization and planning, experience, and community connections, corporate partners develop successful projects and community relationships. PMD corporate partnership projects involve hands-on tasks, team work, and learning goals. PMD handles all details so that participants can simply show up and jump right in. Project selection and associated expenses are driven by a company's values, goals, timeline, and budget.

    PMD Corporate Partners include Novartis, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA, and Alkermes. Please contact Lori Tsuruda at (*82)1-781-963-0373 or email Lori for more details about Corporate Partnerships at your place of business or in the community.
