The Volunteer Management Institute (VMI) is an intensive certification program that provides training in the core concepts of volunteer management. Although this is not an academic certificate, the training offered as part of the program is designed to sharpen and develop the skills of anyone involved in the important task of volunteer management for a nonprofit organization.
The two and a half day workshop will be valuable for the novice volunteer manager just learning the ropes or the seasoned veteran wanting to brush up on the basics. Attendance at all sessions is required for certification.
