Girls Scouts River Valleys recently received certification as a Service Enterprise by Points of Light—the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. Service Enterprise certification is a prestigious accomplishment for an organization. In fact, organizations that certify join the top eleven percent of nonprofits nationwide in volunteer management and organizational performance.
Girl Scouts River Valleys completed an extensive assessment, over twenty hours of training and coaching, and an extensive internal planning and change process to better integrate volunteers into our human capital strategy. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, our council staff and volunteers have exhibited the ability to be partners in the mission and leaders for change.
The Service Enterprise program is a national change management program that helps organizations gain a greater return on volunteer investment to better achieve their mission. As a volunteer with a certified service enterprise organization, your voice, your collaboration, and your participation are the foundation to our success.
