June 5, 2012

ImageBe the change by being a leader! Volunteer Leader Institute (VLI) empowers individuals to lead service projects for a group, organization, or corporate team. Volunteer Leaders learn relevant leadership skills and theory that will enable them to manage diverse groups of volunteers. 

Upon completion of VLI, individuals will understand how to coordinate the logistics of a project, manage volunteers, track volunteers, and debrief the service experience. This two-hour training is a must for volunteers who want to take their commitment to the next level. All VLI graduates will receive a certificate, and must be willing to serve as a project leader for future United Way of Southern Nevada Volunteer Center days of service, corporate service projects, and other events.

Volunteer Leaders are vital to helping create and facilitate large scale service opportunities in southern Nevada. The skills gained through the Volunteer Leader Institute will empower individuals to lead projects with United Way of Southern Nevada’s Volunteer Center and other organizations.
