Volunteer Innovation Partnership

Are you ready to take your volunteer program to the next level? The United Way of Central Indiana Volunteer Center is excited to offer a Volunteer Innovation Partnership (VIP) experience to local non-profits and other volunteer-hosting organizations. As a member of the cohort group, you will be part of a small group of experienced Volunteer Administrators, working collectively to maximize volunteer impact in your organization.

You will receive funding, training, group exercises, and a community of peers to offer support as each agency moves toward a significant goal. Five to ten organizations will be selected to participate in this opportunity to spend a year focused on major capacity-building initiatives.

As part of this partnership, United Way of Central Indiana’s Volunteer Center offers volunteer program assessments to those participating in VIP. The assessment is based on a set of nationally recognized standards that are critical to a high-quality volunteer program. By achieving high performance of these standards, an organization can enjoy the rewards of well-prepared, energetic, and committed volunteers. The resulting report will include information about your program's strengths and challenges, as well as recommendations for improvement.

For more information about how to get your dream project off the ground as a part of the VIP, contact us at volunteer@uwci.org.
