Non-Profits Can Use Convene for Volunteer and Internal Training for FREE
Vita Alligood talks about how she is using her Convene Community to provide online training for volunteers that work at her non-profit organization. This online-training allows people who can’t spend the time or expense for the in-person training to learn all the same training information at their convenience. Her volunteers go through a 7 module training. If they get over 70% on the questions in each module, they earn a certificate. Vita is currently only using Convene for volunteer training, but is looking into adding a private subgroup to house some training for incoming board of directors.
Yokefellow Prison Ministry is an interdenominational, racially-diverse Christian ministry of reconciliation begun in 1969 (and incorporated in 1972), which includes both lay and clergy, male and female. It is founded on the idea that people’s lives are changed through committed relationships.
The ministry is conducted by trained volunteers who lead weekly meetings of small groups inside North Carolina’s correctional institutions. Yokefellow is not focused on worship, preaching, teaching, counseling, or Bible study, but is a ministry of listening, sharing, caring, encouragement and support provided by community volunteers from the “outside” yoked in fellowship with those on the “inside” through the weekly small group meetings.
If you are thinking about how you can use Convene with your Non-Profit organization, you can see all Vita is doing in her community at Yokefellow Prison Ministry in the Convene Hope Community.
If you are a non-profit organization, we do offer Private groups to Non-Profits at no charge.
