    These Standards were created by volunteer engagement professionals (VEP) for volunteer engagement professionals and revised and updated in May of 2022. Based on extensive research and experience, these Standards have been shown to deliver value to both the organization and individual volunteers. AL!VE promotes these Standards as a tool for building organizational capacity to mobilize and manage "volunteer resources" for maximum impact and value. An organization has many resources to apply toward its mission: money, physical space, employees and volunteers, in-kind donations, equipment and technology. It is the responsibility of a dedicated volunteer engagement professional to apply available resources appropriately throughout the organization in order to effectively address current goals and objectivesLearn how you can use this tool to develop your organizations program, assess your program’s effectiveness, or make the case for increased investment in and integration of volunteer engagement.
