Experience the difference our sessions can make to your career development!  Whether you need to maximize new technologies, embrace the future of volunteer engagement, or learn the basics of recruitment, recognition and retention, you are certain to find classes that will help develop you, your volunteers, and your program to their fullest potential.

We are committed to offering relevant education and training opportunities to our community of volunteer management professionals, from those who are new to the field to seasoned veterans. These workshops are facilitated by experts and cover a variety of topics, providing opportunities to meet colleagues, build your network, troubleshoot current challenges, and celebrate successes. Our Education sessions are open to anyone working in nonprofits, community groups, government agencies, service organizations, volunteers themselves, as well as the for-profit sector. Education sessions are free for members, and guests/non-members only pay a small fee. Join us today and transform your career.

Of course, there is some time in between Education Sessions, and while we might feel overrun with social media these days, DOVIA offers a LinkedIn group and a Facebook page where substantive conversations can take place.  Pose a question to your colleagues, answer another colleague's request, and watch for job openings, upcoming trainings, and new resources from experts in the field of Volunteer Engagement.

Our annual Colorado Conference on Volunteerism (CCOV) is the professional development event of the year!

The CCOV provides the opportunity to meet colleagues from across Colorado, interact with cutting edge trainers and speakers, and learn what it means to be a top-notch volunteer engagement professional.
