Tampa Connection is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide local business professionals with the necessary tools to become active leaders and volunteers in the Tampa Bay Community. Each year, a select group of applicants are chosen to participate in the Tampa Connection “class.” The year-long program exposes class members to leadership development, social, and community service opportunities while immersing them in the local community. Each year, local nonprofits submit project proposals to the Tampa Connection Board of Directors, with the selected projects to be carried out by the Tampa Connection class during their program year.
Sponsored by Shutts, the Tampa Connection kick-off event welcomed the participants from the Class of 2022 and introduced past Tampa Connection Chairs who shared their program experiences.
The Tampa Connection prepares members to become active volunteers and leaders in Tampa Bay, while building professional relationships. Over the past 25 years, The Tampa Connection class and board have volunteered 76,620 hours valued at $1,167,000.
