Leadership Development

A key aspect of IAVE’s mission is to help leaders of volunteering stand in solidarity with one another – sharing experiences, challenges, innovations; collaborating around issues and efforts of common interest; supporting one another.

We do that by developing and managing formal networks of key constituency groups. Based on our key strategic priorities, these are:

The Global Network of Volunteering Leadership

IAVE believes that leadership organizations focused on valuing, supporting and developing volunteering provide a catalyst to enhance our common mission, getting more people involved as volunteers and raising awareness on the strategic value of volunteering, all while building key-partnerships to develop and execute successful initiatives. Thus, establishing this dynamic network advances our promise to deliver on key-asks being made by volunteering leadership organizations all over the world.
