VIP Management Corps: Want to Grow Your Volunteer Program?

Posted Jan 26, 2016 02:05 PM
Apply by February 15 to join the 2016 VIP Management Corps (VMC) cohort program so that your organization can receive a temporary boost in staffing to help you more effectively recruit, engage and retain high-value volunteers. The program runs from June through October. At the end of the process, your nonprofit will receive the resources, training and support necessary to become stronger stewards of volunteers.

Does your organization recognize the value of volunteers but need to get organized so you can better harness their time and talents?

Apply to participate in the Volunteer Impact Partnership Management Corps (VMC) program and receive a temporary boost in staffing to help your organization develop the essential tools and systems needed to effectively recruit, engage, and retain high-value volunteers.

VMC, a program delivered in partnership with the United Way of King County, connects organizations with a Volunteer Management Corps (VMC) Member and project advisor who will work with the organization to help identify volunteer program improvement goals and develop a work plan for the VMC Member to complete. VMC Members work 150 hours from June through October. Project teams receive access to resources, training, and support in order to develop or enhance program elements such as:

  • Volunteer recruitment and marketing
  • Screening, placement, and orientation
  • Supervision, training, and recognition
  • Volunteer evaluation and program planning
Organizations are responsible for appointing a supervisor who provides the vision and resources the VMC member needs to accomplish their goals.

Learn more about VMC and schedule an informational interview to determine whether VMC would be a right fit. Space in the summer 2016 cohort is limited, so apply today. Interviews must be scheduled by Feb. 15, 2016 and complete program applications must be received by Mar. 1 in order to be considered.
