Program Overview

The Everyone Ready® Volunteer Management Skill-Building Program delivers quality training and regular communications to learners within your network. Learners can access all resources on their own, at any time. The program was developed by Energize, Inc., recognized around the world for providing exceptional resources for leaders of volunteers since 1977. 

Enrollment in Everyone Ready® gives you (for Individual members), your team (for Team members) or every person in your organization (for Organization members) the ability to use the many resources in 5 program components, as well as giving you metrics to assess participation for Organization and Team memberships: 

1. The Learning Center

The cornerstone of the Everyone Ready® Volunteer Management Skill-Building Program is the Learning Center, a “library” of 40 (and growing!) key volunteer management training resources plus three (3) introductory trainings designed to lay the foundation for successful involvement of volunteers. Each member has 24/7 access to the Learning Center. The training topics have universal interest, have been field-tested by diverse national organization members since 2005, and are updated – and expanded -- regularly.

2. Guided Learning on a Bi-Monthly Featured Topic

While all topics are continuously accessible in the Learning Center, every two months we take a deep dive and guide learners through a Featured Topic, for which we assemble a variety of resources learners can access immediately on the site. They can then choose to explore the content most relevant to their work and level of experience.

3. Learner Q&A

Because the Everyone Ready® materials are produced to introduce learners to the basic concepts of volunteer management, we cannot cover every type of special situation – and often learners want to “translate” the presented materials to the specifics (and language) of their own situations. So we offer the continuous opportunity to ask specific questions of the expert trainers via the Learner Q&A area.

4. Unlimited Access to the e-Volunteerism Journal

An international online publication, e-Volunteerism: The Electronic Journal of the Volunteer Community, publishes a new issue quarterly with a variety of new articles on trends and best practices in working with volunteers in any setting. All Everyone Ready® members receive full access to read the most current quarterly issue and to benefit from the entire archive of over 16 years of past issues (over 450 500 articles and growing).

Participants in Everyone Ready® receive e-mail announcements for the new Featured Topics as well as reminders 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.
