TCF will be offering this series and certificate one final time in Fall 2017. We are pleased to announce that our partner HandsOn Greater Richmond will be offering Volunteer Management Training in the future, in conjunction with GRAVA. Please follow ConnectVA for future announcements and training opportunities!
In collaboration with HandsOn Greater Richmond and the Greater Richmond Association for Volunteer Administration (GRAVA), TCF offers students the opportunity to earn a Certificate in Volunteer Resources Management. Leaders and managers of volunteers commonly report that completing the Certificate in Volunteer Management while gaining working experience in volunteer engagement is a helpful step to becoming eligible and preparing for the CVA certification exam (Certification in Volunteer Administration).

Please note, the only requirement to receive the Volunteer Resources Management Certificate is attending all four of these sessions between 2014-2017. You will need to let our office know when you have completed all four classes to be awarded the certificate.
