Your job is challenging — and rewarding, too!
You’re the only person responsible for volunteers and expected to do it all (and other jobs, too!)
Your co-workers see volunteers as more of a burden than a powerful resource for their work
You simply don’t have enough resources to do the job you’d like to do (and know you should do)
You want to show the impact of volunteer work (beyond the basic hourly value), but are not sure how to get started
Let us show you how to overcome these obstacles and more. Stop fumbling around to find approaches that work. Come learn what we’ve learned from decades in the field.
Become the organization volunteers
can’t wait to support!

Your organization isn’t average and neither are you!
One-off webinars are great for casual learning, but you need more, don’t you?
Learn a system takes you through the entire volunteer engagement lifecycle from first touch to departure.
We teach the essential skills to engage today’s volunteers and keep them coming back.
AND, we provide enthusiastic coaching, support, and feedback as you try out new strategies.
To keep you organized, each month we’ll send you reminders for our upcoming live webinars and coaching calls, suggested recordings and tools, and big planning questions based on our monthly theme.
To help you stay up to date on today’s evolving best practices, our webinars are informed by reviews of current research literature. Each course includes at least two handouts and a PDF of the slides. If you can’t make it live, no worries! They are recorded & posted in the community within 24 hours.
To help you apply what you’ve learned and to get advice on what you’ve developed, we conduct “mastermind” calls every month. If you can’t make it live, no problem! Calls are recorded & posted in the community within 24 hours. You can also post questions in the community forum.
To help you build program structures you can use now and into the future, we lead quarterly member-only project-based “developmental sprints” centered around a recent webinar theme and focused on completing a planning deliverable.
This isn’t a Facebook group, this is a full-fledged community forum where members can post, comment, and follow specific conversations and communicate with one another via our member directory. You can also specify how often and which community alerts you want to receive in your email inbox.
We have over 50 webinar recordings and over 200 tools and templates, all highly searchable by type of content, topic area, and keyword. We feature the most recent webinar recordings and handouts so you can easily find them, and you can post comments and questions about any resource in our library.
We will happily confirm your participation in live webinars and coaching calls for your Certified in Volunteer Administration (CVA) credential renewal. Just let us know.
We get it, even if you’re co-workers don’t! We appreciate the hard work you put in and understand how vital your volunteers are to your organization’s success. We are behind you 100%!

What people are saying about VolunteerPro …
“I recently received my Volunteer Management Certification from our local college. During the 2 year course – I noticed a good amount of the information that was utilized as course material was rather dated. As a result – I went looking for more current information and on that journey found VolunteerPro.
I signed up for several webinars last year and found them be up to date, extremely beneficial and job-related. Because of the cost – I had to choose carefully which webinars to join. This year I argued that I could take in ALL of the webinars and enjoy the other benefits of VolunteerPro as well to sell my boss on the cost to become a member.”
“Thanks again for the work that you’re doing for our profession and especially for those of us who are immersed in the day-to-day of getting it all done. You not only teach creating a welcoming environment, you model the behavior beautifully.”
“Wow, Tobi, thank you. I had not realized the value of support I was getting into. I follow Volunteer Coordinators on LinkedIn and saw your post today. I sort of “stumbled” in joining because of what I saw. Very happy I did.”
“I manage several hundred volunteers. Thankfully there are many different kinds, interns or long term, high school students short term and some that come back every year. This was the first time I let my management duties get so out of control then this webinar made me take a good look and realize I do a lot of things and now I am going to rework my volunteer process so it’s not so out of hand. I found this webinar a good way to look at myself and better develop my management skills to make it all work. Thank You for bringing this to my attention through your webinar. It was well done and, informative and makes you step back and take a look. Thanks for the recharge of my batteries.”
