Join this year’s Learning Path for Leaders of Volunteers. With Spring, many volunteer programs also go in full bloom! Level up your volunteer engagement with this sequence of workshops is specifically designed to support people engaging with volunteers in their roles.


Each workshop’s content will give you foundational insights and actionable skills to bring to your jobs. Whether you are a full-time volunteer engager or you are doing this part time; whether you are new to this field, or if you have been leading volunteers for a while, this learning path will provide you with knowledge, skills, and a community of like-minded practitioners.


The Learning Path’s facilitators are recognized volunteer engagement professionals and many of them are affiliated with Ottawa Leaders of Volunteers (OLV), the local association for volunteer management professionals.
