Welcome to the Volunteer Management online course series, presented to you by the Corporation for National and Community Service in conjunction with Hands On Network. Hands On Network is an internationally recognized volunteer management resource developing a new generation of volunteer engagement techniques — tailored to today’s community service organization.

This course, Enagaging College Students as Volunteer Leaders, was developed to help national service programs leverage the tremendous energy and skills of college students to serve as volunteer leaders. It is meant to be a user-friendly resource for building a program that utilizes and supports student volunteer leaders.
