Fall 2023...Coming Soon!

The Volunteer Engagement Training Program (VETP) is for anyone at your organization who engages volunteers. Each session will include information and tools related to an element of volunteer program management and dedicated time for peer-to-peer engagement that will allow you to troubleshoot a program issue and receive support, resources, and suggestions from your professional peers.

What the VETP graduates are saying...

"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."
