This course is one of the curriculum courses for the Volunteer Management Certificate Program offered by Volunteer Management Institute.  

Participation in the Certificate Program is NOT required in order to enroll.  


Overview -The responsibility for volunteer management may be assigned to staff whose primary function lies elsewhere, for example: administrative assistance, fund development, human resources or event planning. Many organizations could not function without the generous contribution of their dedicated volunteers. Effective management of volunteers is a crucial element for the success of non-profit organizations. Participants who complete the certificate program will be provided with the knowledge, tools and networking opportunities to align their work with the strategic mission and values of their agency. This in turn strengthens capacity within the organization.

Curriculum - The Volunteer Management Certificate curriculum is based on current accepted core competencies and a body of knowledge which serves as a foundation for volunteer management. Participants will be given many opportunities for interactive learning and is an excellent opportunity to develop professional relationships that will support them following this rich learning experience.
