VolunteerNow® Education and Training

VolunteerNow is a national thought leader in volunteerism. We recognize that nonprofit organizations can make a greater impact on the community when they effectively engage and manage volunteers. To facilitate this process we offer practical, cost-effective training and consulting on all phases of volunteer engagement and management.

Our workshops provide the foundation for building an outstanding volunteer program. Each session is designed to enhance core competencies in volunteer management and facilitators are subject matter experts, hand-picked based on their understanding of nonprofits and volunteerism.

I have attended a number of trainings at VolunteerNow because they are ALWAYS helpful in my work with volunteers. I get current information and ideas on how to teach, train, recruit, write great volunteer job descriptions and help our volunteers feel welcome!
