Volunteer Management Leadership Certificate Program


Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning is pleased to present the longest-running program in volunteer management in Canada's non-profit sector. This program teaches the foundations of volunteer management based on best practices and addresses the building blocks which lead to a strong and engaged volunteer team. It teaches strategies for planning, developing, evaluating and leading relationships to engage all stakeholders.  Courses are available in-class or online.

Online Learning
Online courses are accessible via web browser from anywhere in the world and are well-suited to those who need a more flexible study schedule. An online course requires approximately 4-5 hours per week of study time.  This would include reading material, posting answers to questions and or taking part in online discussions.  The course is delivered via an online learning management system called Blackboard.  Students have access three days prior to the course start date and will see a Welcome letter explaining next steps.  The course Critical Path is posted where you can see what material will be covered week-by-week and you will see the material and/or links to readings.  All your tests will be accessed on this platform and assignment(s) are uploaded.  You will correspond with classmates and the facilitator online through discussion boards and group or private chats sessions.  Ffor information on system requirements for online courses and other information regarding online learning at Humber, visit the Open Learning website at or call 416.675.5049.
