What the VETP graduates are saying...

"Whether you are a first time volunteer coordinator or one with years of experience the VETP helps you evaluate and improve the direction of your volunteer program with help from peers and professionals."
"As a newly assigned volunteer coordinator, this training has been really eye opening for me. Each session provides great insight from experts in the field. I have gained a lot of new ideas to take back to my organization which will help me to bring our volunteer program to the next level. I love having the opportunity to collaborate with nonprofits doing amazing volunteer work in the Lehigh Valley!"
"I really appreciate having the opportunity to receive training and frank discussions with others in my position. Being able to receive direct feedback and practical solutions to issues that I am facing has allowed me to be more efficient at work. If this is offered again, I will be signing up."
