Energize, Inc. is an international training, consulting and publishing firm specializing in volunteerism. If these words are in your vocabulary—volunteer, community service, membership development, auxiliary, community organizing, service-learning, lay ministry, pro bono work, supporter, friends group, political activist, service club—we can help!
Since 1977, Energize has assisted organizations of all types with their volunteer efforts—whether they are health and human service organizations, cultural arts groups, professional associations, schools, units of government, or any setting involving volunteers. Our free Web site is widely-recognized internationally as one of the most comprehensive resources available for leaders of volunteers.
We have conducted consultations and trainings with clients across the United States and Canada, Europe, Asia, Latin America, Israel, and Australasia. Known for our extensive knowledge of the volunteer management field and our ability to tailor our consults and workshops to the unique needs of an organization, we can promise positive results.
Our President, Susan J. Ellis, is acknowledged as a cutting-edge speaker and writer, always advocating for the strongest vision of volunteer involvement around the globe. Susan is the “dean” and lead consultant for the Everyone Ready plan, assisted by Betty B. Stallings, another internationally-known volunteerism consultant and frequent collaborator on Energize projects.
Energize has unparalleled relationships with a network of volunteerism trainers and other specialists, selecting the best to provide the highest quality materials and training programs for Everyone Ready.
Publishing and Web Presence
In addition to our free Web site especially for leaders of volunteers (http://www.energizeinc.com), Energize also publishes the quarterly online subscription journal, e-Volunteerism: The Electronic Journal of the Volunteer Community, which started in 2000.
Energize is one of a very small number of publishers who specialize exclusively in volunteer management materials. We have established a reputation for producing quality electronic resources that meet the real-life needs of leaders of volunteers. These resources are featured in our Online Bookstore, where we sell over 80 titles from sources on three continents.
