Does your organization engage volunteers?


Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration and HandsOn Twin Cities are excited to announce a new delivery method of the very successful Service Enterprise Initiative.  The new platform is going to be web-based! Your team can participate in these interactive cohort trainings at your location, maximizing your time to take advantage of this opportunity.

This national certification program empowers organizations to increase their impact by leveraging skills of volunteers, expanding the culture of volunteerism and engaging senior leadership.  More than 50 organizations across Minnesota have been certified as Service Enterprises; the process has been called a “game-changer” by participants, bringing more cohesion and consistency to their volunteer engagement efforts.

More specifics on the upcoming web-based pilot:

§ Application deadline:  June 21, 2019.  Because this is a pilot, participation will be limited to a small number of organizations.  We encourage you to apply early.

§ Expectations for participating in virtual Service Enterprise training sessions (held July – August):
o   At least three people from your organization must attend all 6 – two hour webinar sessions for a total of 12 hours (See attached FAQ sheet for training dates and more details)
o   Plan on spending a total of about 4 hours in group work between the web-based trainings
o   You will need access to high speed Internet (at your office or another community location where your team can gather)
