Service Enterprise Training Duluth - Cohort 9

MAVA and Hands on Twin Cities invite your organization to apply to participate in the Service Enterprise Initiative.  This research based assessment, training, consultation and certification program will be offered to a group of 6-10 organizations during the spring and summer of 2017. Training sessions for this cohort group will be held in Duluth.


Organizations selected to participate in this initiative receive the following services and benefits:

  • A comprehensive organizational assessment taken by a team of 3-25 people within each organization to benchmark volunteer engagement practices
  • A comprehensive review of the assessment report to start the conversation and launch the creation of an action plan to make changes and grow volunteer engagement
  • Four training sessions for a team of 3-10 participants from each organization
  • Up to ten hours of consultation following the training sessions
  • The opportunity to receive national certification as a Service Enterprise from Points of Light by achieving defined standards and demonstrating excellence in specified areas

To date, 28 Minnesota organizations have achieved Service Enterprise certification, and nearly 20 more are in process to become certified.  To see a full list of certified organizations and to learn more visit
