Are you a natural leader? Do you want to give back to the community while strengthening your resume? Are you ready to take your volunteering to the next level but don't know where to start? Look no further, than our Sherpa training.
What's a Sherpa, you ask? Well, on the trail, the Sherpa is the first to welcome travelers, takes the lead in guiding people, and always has answers to crucial questions. Climbing a mountain may not be your thing, but volunteers--especially first timers--often need the same support as those on an adventure.
Thats why TWIF has created our Sherpa training. During this sixth month program, you'll learn the basics of volunteer management, problem solving, working professionally with non-profits, story telling for a cause, and how to engage the community so people keep coming back!
And it isn't all just reading, we send you out monthly to apply what you've learned at a volunteer event of your choice and to test your talking points at some of our social recruitment events. Along the way, you'll have the full support of our Volunteer Coordinator team and staff. At the end, you will be certified to lead (as a Sherpa) TWIF events, get a shiny certificate for your LinkedIn, and have all the knowledge we've learned over years of leading successful events to teach you how to be an awesome leader in all situations.
Are you ready to take your volunteering to Sherpa level?
We currently offer six scholarships per quarter for those interested in completing the program. Estimated time commitment per month is 8-10 hours.
