Launch of Volunteer Partnerships Impact Assessment (VPIA) Toolkit
It is here!
We have spent months developing Singapore’s first-ever toolkit to measure the impact of volunteer programmes.
Having been a volunteer manager myself, I have come to see the multi-faceted value that volunteer programmes bring to service users, organizations and staff, other volunteers and the community. But I also realised how it often seems daunting trying to figure out how to get started with impact assessment and also how to start getting good insights of these impact.
Thus, with our team at Emmaus, comprising staff and FuelGooders volunteers, we developed a step-by-step guide to impact assessment for volunteer programmes. After months of reviewing existing toolkit overseas, looking at available research on the topic, trying to understand the operational needs on the ground and holding countless discussions, we are excited to bring you the Volunteer Partnerships Impact Assessment Toolkit (VPIA).
As part of Emmaus Strategies’ Corporate Social Responsibility effort and in trying to “fuel good”, we are glad to release the toolkit to Social Purpose Entities in Singapore. 300 free copies will be made available for download in our first “wave” of the launch from our website’s e-shop at www.emmaus.sg/public/product-category/volmgt/
Don’t forget to also have a look at our other strategic volunteer partnerships and mental well-being resources and services.
Wishing you all the best.
Signing off, James
