Event description
If 2020 was the year of cancelled plans and 2021 was the year of catching up, then 2022 is the year of innovation!

About this event

Each module in this course (developed by Points of Light, facilitated by Volunteer Houston) will empower volunteer managers and coordinators – both formal and informal – to return to their organization and to their team with ready-to-use tools, best practices, and innovative ideas that, when fully adopted, will boost volunteer engagement in a way that naturally fosters long-term volunteers.

ENROLLMENT IS LIMITED TO 23 PARTICIPANTS. REGISTER EARLY TO SAVE YOUR SEAT!

We will introduce the Supportive Environments for Effectiveness (SEE) framework. When nonprofits adopt a SEE-mindset and experiment with small changes in their work environments, transformation is possible.
