Volunteer Management Database Solutions
Our second webinar focused on technology for managing volunteer and community partner information. We invited our partners at NobleHour to provide a demo of their platform. We think it’s the best solution out there, but we know that for many of us, it is often difficult to find the time to become familiar with new solutions much less decide and adopt one.
The NobleHour channel on YouTube also features a number of short videos covering different features and functions.

Building It Up
For 2012-13 IMPACT will be piloting a new organizational development/capacity-building program for colleges and universities interested in adopting the Coalition of Projects Model or enhancing programs that already have parts of the model.
The pilot program will involve an initial organizational assessment, development of an implementation plan, consulting and training, and participation in a network of institutions all seeking to strengthen their service programs.
In addition, we will be assembling a team of researchers, consultants, and trainers.
