Testimonials from Volunteer Consultants:

Mark Ellwood
I’ve been volunteering with MAS for a number of years and the work is always rewarding. I run my own business that keeps me busy. MAS is terrific because it offers me the flexibility to choose the projects that interest me and that I have time to volunteer for. It feels great to know that I can use my skills to make a real difference to a variety of organizations. 
Sue Pulfer
By doing pro-bono work for non-profits in the GTA I can help both non-profit organizations and through them, their end-clients. MAS also provides a community to share ideas about how best to do the kind of work that can help organizations who either don’t have the skilled staff or the dollars to invest in consulting services. MAS Consulting engagements help encourage me to stay up-to-date on industry trends and to retain the valuable skills I learned throughout my career.
