Tell me more…….

As an accountability review volunteer, you will evaluate assigned agencies and help ensure donor dollars are invested in programs that are making a real difference in people’s lives.  Volunteer teams review and assess partner agencies on quality standards which measure an agency’s ability to demonstrate success and competency in four key areas: governance, finance, administration and program outcomes.

 

You will be asked to invest about 15 hours total over a three month period (January through March)

A 1.5 hour orientation and training session will teach you how to understand and interpret program designs and program outcomes

A significant portion of the review is conducted on-line from any computer

You will visit four to five agencies to learn about the agency and their United Way funded programs

 

Accountability Review volunteers are needed to serve February – March. Multiple orientations and training will be held in November and December. Please CLICK HERE for more information and to register. All training dates as well as meeting times and locations are provided through e-CImpact.
