COTUIT –The Cotuit Center for the Arts has announced that they have been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise.
A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills throughout their organization to successfully deliver on its social mission.
Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.
The Cotuit Center for the Arts completed an extensive assessment, over 20 hours of training and consulting and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in the day to day operations.
By achieving the level of excellence and certification, the Cotuit Center for the Arts is now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers and better meet their mission.
Since opening a new facility in May of 2004, Cotuit Center for the Arts has produced or presented over 50 art exhibitions featuring over 500 visual artists, more than 40 concerts, and 20 full length theatrical productions.
Additionally, Cotuit Center for the Arts has been offering year-round classes and workshops in the visual and performing arts through the years.
