United Way's Volunteer Center offers certification to local nonprofit organizations with well-managed volunteer programs. Certification is based on a set of nationally recognized standards critical to quality volunteer management practices.

By meeting these standards, organizations can enjoy the rewards of well-equipped, energized and committed volunteer participation in their activities. Further, certification helps encourage professionalism by recognizing that there are defined management principles that are required for the effective management and utilization of volunteers.


The Employee Volunteer Council of Greater St. Louis (EVC), originally established in 1983 as the Corporate Volunteer Council and reintroduced in 2015, brings business and labor leaders together to share best practices around employee volunteerism for the development and expansion of employee and skill-based volunteer programs, and promote the value of volunteering within its companies and throughout the region. Volunteer Center, with decades of experience in creating innovative solutions to meet the needs of today's business community, will provide staffing support to the EVC.
