We get to ask ourselves questions about our goals, our accomplishments and whether we are achieving them. If you have plans to take volunteer management, board governance or organizational wellness to the next level – let us help! Great training opportunities are ahead. Check them out!

PREB: Building Communities Through Volunteer Recognition

prebThe PREB-Ontario system is a set of online tools that organizations use to recognize a volunteer’s experience including the skills they honed. Through PREB you can create certificates that volunteers can show to potential employers and education officials.

We are thrilled to announce that our new Learning Alliance facilitator, Julia Gingrich, will be delivering this workshop in the beginning of fall 2015. She will help you learn about PREB and how your organization can use it for recognition.
