Volunteer Management Training
The Weber State University Center For Community Engaged Learning received the pilot program grant in late 2011 and began relaying the trainings they received to their partners in 2012. All volunteer managers who participate in at least four of the five sessions receive their certification from the Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism. We highly recommend that you implement principles from these modules in your own volunteer programs. Volunteers will have a better experience, thus leading to higher retention rates and better overall satisfaction. Volunteer managers, while having to put in additional work initially, will reap the benefits of a volunteer program that is increasingly self-sustaining.
Additionally, organizations wishing to partner at the Wildcat or Purple Pride levels must have a Certified Volunteer Manager in their volunteer program.
