A 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.


NEW: Multiple Locations/Affiliates Communities of Practice
Date and Time TBD by group

Calling all volunteer management professionals who work at an organization with multiple locations or affiliates!

You are invited to join an exclusive community dedicated to solving the issues you are facing. AL!VE is forming a community of practice to include leading national and international nonprofits responsible for supporting volunteer engagement throughout their organizations. Volunteer engagement staff at a nonprofit with multiple locations are often supporting volunteer managers, rather than directly supporting volunteers.  Discussion topics will be guided by member needs, but can include sharing around risk management and data protection, creating virtual training for multiple locations, and connecting our work to Sustainable Development Goals. 

For more information or to join, contact Allyson Drinnon, COP facilitator, at allysondrinnon@hotmail.com.


Rural Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice - Link to Join Below

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.

Busting Myths and Believing Benefits: Strategies to Help Staff Want to Work with Volunteers 
Presemted by Lisl Hacker, Director of Training and Technical Assistance at the Massachusetts Service Alliance
 
Utilizing volunteers to increase the capacity and impact of your organization definitely sounds like an appealing thing to do; however, putting this into practice is sometimes met with unexpected resistance and hesitation especially by those that could benefit most from volunteers - organization staff. Successfully integrating volunteers into an organization requires the support and buy-in of everyone at the organization and not just the Volunteer Coordinator or Manager.
 
This webinar will cover:
  • Deconstructing the myths around the use of volunteers
  • Evidence-based benefits that using volunteers can provide to an organization and its staff
  • Specific strategies that can be used to create staff buy-in
  • Defining the steps of successful delegation
Presented by Lisl Hacker, Director of Training and Technical Assistance  
Massachusetts Service Alliance

Lisl Hacker has been working in the service and volunteerism field for the last 10 years. She joined the Massachusetts Service Alliance, the State Commission for Service and Volunteerism, in the fall of 2014, first as a consultant and then officially came on staff as the Director of Training and Technical Assistance where she oversees multiple grants from the Corporation of National and Community Service, the Points of Light Service Enterprise initiative, the planning of a bi-annual state conference on service and volunteerism and many other training opportunities. She often jokes that her resume reads like a “choose your own adventure book” in that she has had a lot of varied work experience ranging from teaching environmental education and coaching tennis to supporting those with mental illness in a residential facility and those with developmental disabilities in an employment program to most recently serving as a Senior AmeriCorps Portfolio Manager at YouthBuild USA. Lisl has a BA in German and Psychology from Bowdoin College and a MSW and EdM from Boston University. Although it has slowed down in recent years since becoming a parent (which is her true passion), she also has a passion for travelling and has visited almost 40 different countries.

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!
