We Support You and Your Learners
Energize staff provides you support and guidance in launching the Everyone Ready Volunteer Management Skill-Building Program to your network, publicizing the program throughout your organization, and encouraging participation.
Each Everyone Ready Organization Member organization must designate an official “Point Person” (and also an alternate) who is the liaison to Energize for bringing the resources to your network. Your Point Person receives the following services and benefits:
- Point Person Area, a special section of the site with descriptions, notices, announcement flyers and other materials useful in promoting the Everyone Ready training resources throughout your network.
- Usage Statistics and Evaluation Reports are continuously available online, summarizing your participants’ activity and feedback for specific date ranges and training materials.
- Individualized consultation time by phone or e-mail with Energize staff to assist you in launching and running the Everyone Ready program, or to discuss any volunteer-related topic of your choice during the year.
- Everyone Ready Point Person Network through which he or she connects with peers facing similar issues in implementing and maintaining the most beneficial use of the resources in the program. As peers, Point People share their best practices in volunteer leadership and how they make their infrastructure more efficient and effective. Point People benefit from periodic conference calls and internal marketing tools for publicizing the Everyone Ready services and materials.
- Calendar of Upcoming Featured Topics to allow you to invite your network to focus on the same topic together. You can then add value through conference calls for discussion, on-site workshops, or informal brown-bag lunch sessions – all keeping volunteer engagement on the agenda for strategic planning.
- Reminders sent by Energize directly to participants to announce the Featured Topic as well as reminders for them to take advantage of the training opportunities and to ask their questions of the expert trainers. The e-mails also set the topic into context and alert participants to further resources on the highlighted subject. Learners can also join the private Everyone Ready Facebook group where they’ll receive additional reminders and have opportunities to network with their peers.
- Optional Launch with Introductory Topics – You can start your members with a seminar and two guides designed to orient newcomers, draw attention to the importance of volunteer engagement, and lay the groundwork for the highlight Featured Topics to come.
