WHAT IS A SERVICE ENTERPRISE?
The Service Enterprise Initiative - Virtual Tour
SERVICE ENTERPRISE BENEFITS & RESOURCES
A COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSTIC
Organizations have access to the Service Enterprise Diagnostic, a thorough, research-based assessment of their existing volunteer engagement practices that informs their training and provides tailored recommendations for improvement.
VOLUNTEER ENGAGEMENT TRAINING
Organizations receive up to 16 hours of training focused on change management and volunteer engagement to help them transform and
reimagine how they currently engage volunteers.
Organizations receive up to 10 hours of coaching to help them translate knowledge from the training into action for their organization.
Organizations receive a designation signifying a commitment to leveraging the time and talent of volunteers to meet the organization’s social mission.
A NETWORK OF PEERS
Organizations that join the Service Enterprise program will be able to network with each other, share best practices and provide peer-to-peer support.
RESEARCH AND RESOURCES
Organizations gain access to proprietary content and research, including a robust resource library with trends and reports about how best to engage and manage volunteers.
To achieve this national certification, each of these local nonprofits completed an extensive assessment, over 20 hours of training and consulting, and months of internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in their day to day operations.
