Community of Practice is a group of volunteer engagement professionals that meets virtually to share issues, strategies and best practices, get and receive colleagues' support, make connections, and provide an opportunity to share information, experiences, and resources specific to the industry/structure or community they serve.

Volunteer Engagement Professionals in small towns face unique challenges and opportunities that aren’t always addressed by advice intended for city-based audiences. There are also fewer opportunities to connect with others doing similar work across the country. That’s what led to the creation of AL!VE’s Community of Practice (CoP) for volunteer engagement professionals in rural communities.

For any questions about this, please contact Michelle Raymer, COP facilitator, at michelle.raymer@iowaeda.com.

Registration information coming soon - please check our calendar for updates.

Supporting & Engaging Volunteers with Mental Illness
1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness, which means that means many of our current and potential volunteers are living with mental health conditions. In this interactive webinar we will cover simple tools, practical strategies, and next steps to create a volunteer program that welcomes, supports and sustains volunteers with mental illness. By the end of this training, participants will be better able to recognize some common symptoms and communication strategies, identify concrete steps that any organization can take, and create their own short and achievable action plan of next steps to better support volunteers with mental illness.

Presented by Katie Mahoney, MSW
Program Manager, NAMI Seattle

Free for AL!VE Members:  $25 for General Public  (you will be billed after registering)
This professional development webinar could be used as 1.0 Professional Development Units (PDU's) for CVA Recertification.

AL!VE Academy Partner Webinar: Finding the right questions to get the right answers for recruiting volunteers! Presented by VSys One
Volunteer leadership is a challenging and rewarding career field. Until you are in the role, you cannot completely comprehend what it is, and your role continually changes. Volunteer leaders are both a mystery and a phenomenon. Navigating the role and the “loose expectations” is often left up to you, the volunteer leader. You are often allowed to define your role and expected to produce proof you are succeeding. If we don’t ask the right questions, we will never get the right answers. This very brief “tour of the volunteer process” seeks to ask if you can communicate to your community the true impact your volunteers provide. This is an opportunity to look beyond the age-old questions typically asked of volunteer leaders: ï‚· How many volunteers did you have last year? ï‚· And how many hours did they serve? Volunteering is about people, the mission and impact this partnership has on a community. Volunteer leaders should be able to tell the story. Discover how you can tell your success story and be able to impact real decision-making in your organization!
