Come learn about the Service Enterprise Initiative (SEI), a leading nonprofit capacity building and certification program, led by Points of Light, that helps organizations achieve greater ‘return on investment’ (ROI) for volunteer engagement and ultimately their missions. Today, we are seeing a surge of passionate leaders, gifted volunteers, and driven organizations step forward to meet the needs of our time through the dedication of volunteers. And yet, the social sector still struggles with getting volunteer engagement right and creating sustainable infrastructures for effective volunteer engagement.

Join us as we reveal what Points of Light has learned over nearly ten years of implementing the Service Enterprise Initiative to help organizations develop the systems and cultures needed to strategically integrate volunteers throughout their operations and effectively engage volunteers.

What You'll Learn: 

What is the Service Enterprise Initiative and how does it help organizations increase their return on volunteer investment?

What’s needed to make volunteering more effective and sustainable at an organization?

How can Service Enterprise Initiative help address pain points, including lack of leadership support for volunteers, or misconceptions about working with volunteers?

Stats and stories of organizations that have become certified Service Enterprises, and how their transformations have led to impact in their communities.

  • Nonprofit Decision Makers
