Certificate in Volunteer Management

Program Overview:

Volunteers provide a unique human resource that can enhance an organization’s ability to achieve its mission, priorities, and goals. And, a well-managed volunteer program provides key building blocks that help ensure organizational sustainability.

Kathleen McCleskey and Wendy Biro-Pollard of Long and Short Associates have been collaborating with ACC’s Center for Nonprofit Studies for over a decade. During this time, they have conducted highly rated, four-day courses that provide managers of volunteer resources with state-of-the art, professional development training that is unique in the State of Texas.

Each class includes lecture, class discussion, opportunities for creative problem solving, networking, and useful resources including tools and checklists – all drawn from Kathleen and Wendy’s careers as practitioners and nationally recognized experts in the field of volunteer engagement.

This course will benefit anyone in the nonprofit, association, and governmental sector who seeks to learn how to build a successful volunteer program. Participants will discover the latest volunteer management trends, learn key steps in the volunteer management process and develop skills and techniques that are useful to any organizational leader.

All sessions have been recognized by the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration and will cover the Council’s Core Competencies for Managers of Volunteer Resources.

The Certificate in Volunteer Management is four full days of learning from and with nationally recognized volunteer management experts.

Upon completion, participants will earn 2.8 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Austin Community College. These may be eligible for use in meeting professional certification requirements.

This is not a CVA (Certified in Volunteer Administration) credentialing course.

Volunteer Management Workshop for Stewardship

Want to recruit your neighbors and friends to work on a Stewardship Project? Want to learn more about how to recruit and sustain volunteer interest in your Stewardship Project? This upcoming workshop will do just that!

This workshop is organized into two sessions to help you learn best practices for volunteer managment and then apply those skills to your own project in a hands-on workshop. In the first session, we’ll learn from Wendy Biro-Pollard, a nationally known expert on volunteers and trends in volunteerism. Wendy will present the historical changes in volunteerism, and discuss how recent trends in volunteer engagement are relevant for planning your projects. She will offer strategies for volunteer retention and minimizing attrition.

The second session will be a workshop facilitated by Jo Gammans, TreeFolks Volunteer & Communications Coordinator. Concepts and strategies presented earlier will be applied to your individual projects in a supportive and constructive environment, and Jo will help you figure out the nuts and bolts of integrating volunteers into your project.
