what people are saying. The moment I became involved with community outreach on behalf of my company, I contacted the BACVC for mentoring, support and advice. Additionally, when anyone asks for advice about Corporate Volunteer activities, the BACVC is my first recommendation.

Benchmarking/Standards
For decades the nonprofit sector has struggled to set universal benchmarking standards for volunteer programs, but recently the conversation has been heating up! Here you will find the latest discussion and reports on best practices in volunteer management.

Reimagining Service Report
Reimagining Service seeks to lead an open dialogue and exchange that elevates the practice of volunteerism in America. To jump start this effort, a Task Force of national leaders published this report about the call to service in America and the need for nonprofits to work hard to revolutionize their strategies. In their research Reimagining Service has created standards for Social Service Enterprises, a nonprofit or for-profit organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills to successfully deliver on the social mission of the organization. Also, be sure to check out these quick fact sheets on Reimagining Service and Nonprofit Social Service Enterprises. Find more resources at www.ReimaginingService.org

The New Volunteer Workforce

Nonprofits rely heavily on volunteers, but many organizations are still mismanaging volunteers. As a result more than one-third of those who volunteer one year do not donate their time the next year to any nonprofit. To remedy this situation, nonprofit leaders are developing strategic approaches to managing a new wave of volunteer talent.
