We believe volunteer program managers provide a critical role in the ongoing development and sustainability of volunteer programs.

It doesn’t matter if you are paid or unpaid, program management is a critical role and should not be neglected.

Develop your skills, knowledge and networks. There are lots of resources online, through NVSA or organisations similar. Make use of them and help both yourself and the volunteers out by being the best manager you can be.

In 2023, these meetings will be held on the following dates:

Mentoring Program

NVSA has developed a Volunteer Program Manager mentoring program.

The program is open to anyone who manages volunteer programs, there is no distinction between paid or unpaid roles.

You will be required to complete an application form and be interviewed by one of our staff. This will enable us to make the best match up.

We will help you to work out specific goals you can work on during the program. The mentoring relationship will be time limited and based on the goals you have established.

The Mentoring Program is a great way to work with someone outside your organisation and obtain an independent perspective on your issues.

The program is underpinned by a number of polices around confidentiality which both parties are expected to adhere to.

If you want to apply to be a mentor this is a great opportunity to work with someone and help them to develop in their professional goals.

To become a mentor you will need to complete an application form and be interviewed by our staff.
