Juli Forman manages the Volunteer Impact Program (VIP) Manager Corps, a joint program with the United Way of King County which helps local nonprofits develop and sustain effective volunteer engagement programs and practices. Participating organizations partner with a Volunteer Manager Corps (VMC) Member who serves approximately 10 hours per week to help develop the essential tools and systems needed to more effectively engage volunteers.
Juli has over 30 years experience working in volunteer management, evaluation, and project management. This has included being the sole staff person for the Volunteer Centers of Washington, the state association of 15 volunteer centers around the state including the United Ways of King, Snohomish, Thurston and Pierce Counties in the Puget Sound region.
Juli grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and received her B.A. in Biology from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. She packed up a Volkswagen bus after college and got the heck out of the mid-west, ending up in Seattle, and eventually adding a master’s degree in Geography from the University of Washington, with an emphasis in applied statistics. Her work in research firms led to her preference for a focus in non-profits.
Fun fact: Juli considered becoming a professional dancer, but could never master the double pirouette.
