What Nonprofits are saying...

"The Service Enterprise Initiative training program gave us the structure we needed to think strategically about how we could expand our capacity at HD Reach in Raleigh. Also, the interaction with other local nonprofits helped us to learn from other more mature volunteer programs.
Ann Lassiter, Executive Director

“Read and Feed is fortunate to have so many committed volunteers. They are the reason for our success. Becoming a Certified SEI organization has helped our Board and Staff understand and reinforce how important and critical our volunteers are to achieving our vision of a community where in which children have the confidence and ability to succeed.”
