Key messages

Through Volunteer Management Training Series you will learn about:

  • Understanding Volunteering: Exploring the Hear of the Volunteer Sector
  • Planning: Building A Solid Foundation
  • Recruiting and Placement: Matching Volunteer Skills with Service Needs
  • Training and Orientation: Achieving Service Excellence
  • Supervision: Maximizing the Volunteer Experience
  • Evaluation: Improving Results Using Data and Feedback

Research shows that nonprofits increase their organizational capacities by building a strong volunteer management model and the first step is to train staff.

VMTS is a great foundation for volunteer leaders, national service members and staff who directly works with volunteers.  The training provides tools to successfully and effectively lead volunteers.

This training is ideal for organizations that leverage volunteers to successfully deliver their social mission.

The training includes a local cohort meeting to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the curriculum by connecting them with others who coordinate/manage volunteers in their area.

Convenient online training and access to experts across the state
