We all dream of using our resources to feed more people,
save more animals, cure more disease, achieve greater results, and double our
impact. Of course, we know we need to accomplish this without significantly
increasing our budget or sacrificing quality. The Service Enterprise Initiative (SEI) has been developed by Points of
Light to make that vision a reality. Through SEI, nonprofits like yours learn
how to fundamentally leverage volunteers and their skills to successfully
deliver your social mission.
This is not your basic Volunteer Engagement 101. This is a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive assessment of staff and engagement practices supported by strategies, tools, and coaching.
