VIP 360

VIP 360 helps organizations create a fundamental shift in the way they engage volunteers and a solid roadmap for improving their volunteer services. Volunteer consultants will:

• Serve in teams of two to lead a local organization through a structured planning process
• Work closely with the organization to identify key issues and action steps for improvement
• Facilitate meetings, take notes and draft reports
• Serve about 8-10 hours per month

If you have expertise in human resources, volunteer management and/or planning and facilitation, we need you! Please consider joining a corps of highly trained professionals dedicated to helping organizations build their capacity to effectively engage volunteers.

Are you ready to serve as a VIP 360 consultant? If so, apply to serve today! Please contact juli@501commons.org with questions.
