Volunteer Power!
Mobilizing the Power and Passion
of the Volunteer Network

Those of us in volunteer administration have something that every organization wants. We have an advantage that no one else has. We are the envy of most businesses and government agencies. What is it? What do we have that they want?

Power and Passion. Our volunteers are passionate about their cause. And when their power is focused, they are powerful. How can the volunteer administrator tap into this power? How can the volunteer manager use this passion to recruit, mobilize, motivate and manage volunteers?

Volunteer Power's mission is to give you the skills, training, and confidence in recruiting, motivating and managing the 21st century volunteer. We are dedicated to reconnect you to your power and passion.
