iVolunteer, as a thought leader for volunteering in India, is committed to deepening the understanding of volunteering and leveraging it to create an enabling environment for volunteers and organisations engaging them. Its work towards this is broadly categorised under 3 pillars:

  1. Publish research and studies conducted by itself and in partnership with other entities;
  2. Undertake capacity building initiatives including trainings, workshops and roundtable discussions for NGOs, businesses, industry associations, government bodies, academic institutes, volunteer leaders and relevant organisations.
  3. Curate knowledge and resources available through partnerships and on public platforms for reference by practitioners of volunteering

This section will enlist such resources. Do Share additional resources which you believe should be listed here. If you need support organising a Training on Volunteer Management, just get in touch!
