      Could your organization benefit from FREE help to engage more volunteers in your mission?


      Do you know someone who wants to help an organization increase its impact on the community? 


      Help a Nonprofit Maximize its Volunteer Program!

      Volunteer with United Way’s Volunteer Impact Partnership


      Many organizations depend on volunteers to deliver their missions. However, effectively engaging volunteers takes capacity that many nonprofits simply do not have. United Way of King County and 501 Commons are working together to help organizations evaluate and improve their volunteer programs through United Way’s Volunteer Impact Partnership (VIP). VIP offers two opportunities for organizations to increase their capacity so they can more effectively meet their missions by recruiting, engaging, and retaining high-value volunteers. Volunteer your skills as a Consultant or be a Volunteer Manager and strengthen our community’s ability to deliver needed services today!


      United Way VIP 360:

      VIP 360 helps organizations create a fundamental shift in the way they engage volunteers and a solid roadmap for improving their volunteer services. Volunteer Consultants will:

      • Serve in teams of two to lead a local organization through a structured planning process
      • Work closely with the organization to identify key issues and action steps for improvement
      • Facilitate meetings, take notes and draft reports
      • Serve about 8-10 hours per month, February through May 2014


      If you have expertise in human resources, volunteer management and/or planning and facilitation, we need you! Please consider joining a corps of highly trained professionals dedicated to helping organizations build their capacity to effectively engage volunteers

      For more information on serving as a VIP 360 consultant please visit the 501 Commons website and apply today. Please contact Gwyn Howard at gwyn@... with questions.


      United Way VIP Manager Corps: 

      VIP Manager Corps gives organizations a temporary boost in volunteer program staffing so they can develop the basic tools and systems needed to more effectively engage volunteers in the delivery of their mission. Volunteers will:

      • Gain experience developing and managing volunteer programs
      • Increase an organization’s capacity to deliver services
      • Serve 300 hours (about 10 hours per week for approximately 8 months) starting in April 2014
      • Receive an $800 United Way service award
      • Receive training in volunteer management best practices

      A successful candidate would have at least two (2) years of experience working in an office environment, proficient computer skills, effective written and oral communication, and the ability to work 10 hours per week during standard office hours. We are particularly interested in applicants who have volunteer management experience, human resource skills, experience working with volunteers and/or groups, or who possess significant experience as a community volunteer.

      To volunteer as a Volunteer Manager Corps member with the VIP Manager Corps review the position description and submit an online application today! Please contact Gwyn Howard gwyn@... with questions.
