The March of Dimes Volunteer Leadership Institute

To ensure March of Dimes Foundation volunteer leaders have rewarding, productive opportunities to learn and grow at all levels of the Foundation, the Foundation designed its Volunteer Leadership Institute. The Volunteer Leadership Institute provides opportunities for personal and professional growth for our key volunteer leaders through training programs, resources and initiatives. It is designed to foster discussion and collaboration between volunteer peers and staff partners that helps build chapter capacity. By providing targeted training, curriculum, tools and campaigns, March of Dimes volunteer leaders--specifically chapter and division board members--are better empowered to turn ideas into action, leading their March of Dimes chapter to success.

The cornerstone of the Institute is the March of Dimes Executive Leadership Program, a 21-credit certification training program. The Executive Leadership Program provides mission and revenue coursework related to the Foundation’s strategic plan and top priorities, providing volunteers with expertise in all aspects of the March of Dimes. This program is a testament to the March of Dimes commitment to ensuring our volunteers have rewarding, productive opportunities to learn and grow at all levels of the Foundation.

The coursework is available through five modules organized into a series of prerequisites; a board orientation; coursework on mission and advocacy; volunteer leadership development; and revenue. Courses are offered at the convenience of our volunteers through live and recorded webinars, online self study and specialized retreat and board meeting programs.

If you are a current March of Dimes board member, please ask your staff partner for more information about the March of Dimes Executive Leadership Program and start taking courses today!
