What the VETP Graduates are saying:

"I was once very overwhelmed with not knowing how to start a volunteer program. Not only do I now know how to start a volunteer program, I also know how to engage and manage the volunteers. I have been provided with the foundation to establish a successful volunteer program."

"I have been in my role for 3 years and I still learned a lot from the training! I loved every minute of it."
