Volunteers are the lifeblood of many nonprofit and public agencies who enable agencies to deliver on their missions. Yet, learning how to recruit, manage and motivate people is difficult to pick up on one’s own. Join us at our training for nonprofit volunteer managers. We can help you gain the skills and resources you need to build and maintain volunteer support. We offer trainings in Oakland, Concord, and Walnut Creek (addresses below).
Registration and advance payment are required for every session. Please call Jo Loss at (925) 472-5760 or contact us by email if you have questions.

WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT OUR TRAINING COURSES:
In two short years our number of volunteers increased from 90 to 175. We realized that in order to continue delivering comprehensive services we needed to create an environment that supported our volunteers. We were pleasantly surprised that the first Volunteer Center training we attended (Volunteer Management Training, a full day course) provided all of the tools and resources we needed to begin constructing a solid volunteer program. We walked out of the training with the tools and confidence to implement what is now a successful volunteer program.

I want to thank you for putting on such a great Volunteer Management Training yesterday. It was wonderful to hear about other organizations and their volunteer programs, and to receive so much great advice on how to build and manage a better volunteer program. I am so excited to revamp our volunteer program and create a workplan based on the tips that you provided yesterday. I look forward to attending additional trainings (budget allowing) in the future.
