Interested in becoming a Service Enterprise and be more effective? Apply to join the 2017-2018 Cohort!
A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills across all levels of the organization to successfully deliver on its social mission. Less than 15% of organizations nationwide can be characterized as Service Enterprises. Nonprofits that operate as Service Enterprises more effectively address community needs and run on almost half the median budget than those nonprofits that do not leverage volunteers across all levels of their organization. When an organization leverages volunteers, managing them effectively, it is in a better position to grow.

As a Service Enterprise Hub, the NYIC leads cohorts of organizations through a process developed by the national organization Points of Light to build their capacity to operate in this way. During the year-long certification process, participating organizations will have access to:

- A thorough research-based assessment of existing organizational volunteer engagement practices called the Service Enterprise Diagnostic (SED).
- Up to 16 hours of training to assist in reimagining the ways in which the organization engages volunteers.
- Up to 10 hours of individualized coaching to address unique organizational opportunities and challenges.
- National certification signifying the organization’s commitment to and proficiency in appropriately leveraging the time and skills of volunteers to meet the social mission of the organization.

If selected, NYIC member organizations can participate in the 2017-2018 cohort for FREE. They will have all training and certification fees covered by NYC Service. Join NYIC or renew membership at http://www.thenyic.org/2017Membership!
