VSOB training boosts Philam Foundation’s volunteer program
“VSO Bahaginan was really instrumental in helping us set up our volunteer management system and this paved the way for us to revive the Philam Volunteer Corps or the Kaakbay Volunteer Program as we call it.” This is according to Max Ventura, executive director of Philam Foundation as he addressed more than a hundred delegates at one of the sessions of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Expo recently held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Entitled ‘Attracting Employee Volunteers’, the session aimed to educate participants on the various ways of drawing employee engagement through volunteering. Ventura who is one of the pioneer beneficiaries of VSO Bahaginan’s Volunteer Management Systems course was also joined by Ronald Allan Victorino of Petron Foundation in this session.
Highlighting VSOB’s role in the success of their volunteer programs, Ventura shared his learnings from the VMS course particularly on placement development, volunteer selection, volunteer support and evaluation.
The VSO Volunteer Management Systems Course is a three-day learning experience that aims to build the capacity of participants to set up management systems for their volunteer programs. The course is a step-by-step guide in developing policies and procedures for managing volunteers. It is open to all volunteer program coordinators and people involved in working with volunteers.
VSOB also exhibited its various training courses from the Learning Hub through the CSR Expo booth. VSOB's booth was graced by CSR praticitioners, government officials, students and supporters including singer and composer Noel Cabangon.
