Recognize Your Volunteers with PREB-Ontario

WHEN: Thursday, February 11, 2016
TIME: 9:30 am - 11:30 am
LOCATION: Volunteer Toronto
COST: $30 Full Subscriber Rate / $50 Regular Rate


PREB-Ontario allows volunteer managers to create certificates outlining their volunteers’ skills and training—a great recognition strategy for volunteers who are looking for work or hoping to bump up their resume. Back by popular demand, our PREB-Ontario certified user training session will show you how to use the PREB-Ontario system, add volunteers and roles, and print certificates. Get ready to create certificates for your volunteers and show your appreciation in a meaningful new way! If you want to start using PREB-Ontario to recognize your valued volunteers, you must attend one of our PREB-Ontario training and certification workshops.



Trailblazer Series: “How to Measure your Organization’s Social Impact”

WHEN: Thursday, February 18, 2016
TIME: 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
LOCATION: Volunteer Toronto
COST: Free for Grassroots/Volunteer-Run Organizations


While many non-profits do great work, fewer are able to measure the difference they’re actually making. Being able to clearly articulate your social impact to your team, stakeholders, potential funders and the public will lead to better impact and greater recognition of the importance of your non-profit. Facilitated by Tinashe Mafukidze, Chief Curator at Nectable, a Toronto based creative boutique that facilitates organizational development, innovation and impact in Canada and around the world, this workshop will explore the tools available and how to use them along with great examples of social impact measurement.

Trailblazer Series workshops are only open to people involved in leading non-profits groups that are solely run by volunteers. Registration is required.
