I Take Pride in Your Learning (or: More Free Webinars)

Your learning is important to usOne of the things that makes me proudest to work at VolunteerMatch is that we are committed to providing free resources for the nonprofits that use our service. Not only do we help organizations like yours connect with the volunteers you need, we help you gain knowledge and skills to effectively manage them once they are involved.

Our Learning Center is the hub for all of this, and the series of 20 free webinars we offer throughout the year is the mainstay. I urge you to check them out and sign up for some sessions that will fill in the blanks for your volunteer program.

Here are some upcoming webinars:
