Nonprofit volunteers touch every aspect of your mission — from your ability to reach strategic goals and objectives, to building connections and trust in our community, to demonstrating to funders you are able to make smart use of their investment.

So, if volunteers are essential to your operations, doesn’t it make sense to optimize their experience?

Our training is more PROGRAM development than PROFESSIONAL development.  With each training — whether it be an a-la-carte webinar or full online course — we provide essential insights and practical tools that are based on decades of experience in the field.  We also keep up with today’s trends and industry needs

Here’s what our students have to say …

“Fantastic experience – loads of ideas to action and value for investment.”

Christine Balle, Volunteer Coordinator, IHC Volunteer Programme, New Zealand

“Tobi explains things in a relatable, down-to-earth way. My team coordinates around 1000 volunteers in a non-profit hospice and these webinars are so helpful!”

Kristine Murtz, Volunteer Services Manager & Pet Peace of Mind Coordinator, Cornestone Hospice

“I love these webinars because they always connect the VM mechanics to the many deeper psychological layers that promote genuine cultivation efforts. Tobi gleefully admits a fascination with neuroscience and the applications to what we do as volunteer managers are SO insightful. This is the way that my brain works as well, so the content resonates hugely with me and my way of doing things. Love love love all of this!”

Alison Jones-Nassar, CVA, Volunteer Engagement and Events Manager, Greater Richmond ARC

“Some amazing ideas which make so much sense! Realising that we need to be much more joined up on our emails to volunteers!!!”
