Management of Volunteer Programs
The Management of Volunteer Programs (MVP) certification is an earned certificate awarded by the Cincinnati Association of Volunteer Administrators in conjunction with the United Way of Greater Cincinnati. MVP certification supports professionals who manage volunteer programs in both non-profit and for-profit agencies and corporations. Instructors provide developmental tools, detailed methods, current concepts, and best practices in the field of volunteer engagement. Through lecture, classroom discussion, group activities, and video presentations, participants will develop their own professional skills.
Each class may be taken individually or as a series. To earn the MVP certification participants must 1) attend and actively participate in the entire MVP series (6 classes) and 2) write a five page paper after implementation of concepts and submit by the due date.
