Tourism & Events Huntsville

Your Chamber is launching a VOLUNTEER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, a new initiative which focuses on training and aligning volunteers with opportunities, designed to create economic development for your business. Our goal is to strengthen and broaden our volunteer base.

 

We encourage everyone to take part in this new initiative!

Sign up for our upcoming courses!

Spread the word about the new Volunteer Development Program!

 

The volunteer development program will offer training sessions to allow volunteers to gain additional qualifications and experience. A small fee will apply for each training session.

 

We will be offering sessions in:

  • Emergency First Aid & CPR
  • Smart Serve
  • Food Handling
  • Customer Service & Being a Difference Maker
  • Leadership
  • Disability Awareness
  • Social Media & Marketing

 

Volunteers can take part in any number of the training sessions being offered; however, those looking to become a CERTIFIED VOLUNTEER must complete at least 6 of the 7 courses provided.

 

Upon completion of a course, each volunteer will receive a certificate. After completing at least 6 courses, each volunteer will receive a Certified Volunteer Certificate and Vest. We encourage our Certified Volunteers to sport these vests around town, as well as wear them in each volunteer position.

 

The volunteer development program is a great way to build your skill set and enhance your resume. You will receive thorough training from professional coaches, allowing you to choose from a wider range of available volunteer positions. In addition to gaining invaluable knowledge and experience, these sessions could also help you save someone's life in an emergency.

 

A full list of Course Dates will be released this Tuesday, September 11, so watch for more details coming soon!
