Kansas Conference on Volunteerism Graphic

Have you heard? Kansas Volunteer Commission is the first certified Service Enterprise organization in Kansas! 

The Service Enterprise Initiative is a national change management program, led by Points of Light, that helps organizations better meet their missions through the power of volunteers. Through a comprehensive assessment, training, coaching and certification model, nonprofits are equipped to engage and manage volunteers more effectively to meet community needs. Research shows that nonprofits that operate as Service Enterprises are equally as effective as their peers but at almost half the median budget, and are significantly more adaptable, sustainable and capable of going to scale.

Achieving Service Enterprise certification is a very prestigious accomplishment. In fact, organizations that certify join the top 11 percent of nonprofits in volunteer management and organizational performance across the nation. Certification signifies that organizations have the capability and management expertise to strategically use volunteers to improve the performance of their organization. 


The Kansas National Service Summit, hosted by the Kansas Volunteer Commission (KVC), will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of both the KVC and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). This event will also include socializing and networking opportunities, special guest speakers, a swearing-in ceremony for AmeriCorps Kansas members and a service project for all participants.
