  • What is Volunteer Program Assessment?

The Volunteer Program Assessment (VPA) is a pro-bono consulting project that provides appraisals of volunteer programs to nonprofit organizations. VPA allows non-profits the opportunity to access typically expensive program appraisal services at no charge.

  • Who are we?

VPA is run solely by group of graduate student volunteers within the George Mason University Industrial Organizational Psychology department who are passionate about giving back to the community. 

  • How does VPA work?

Our graduate student consultants survey your volunteer staff about their experiences working with your organization. They use an online survey to evaluate various volunteer dynamics, including volunteers’ attitudes and reactions to the program, and their intent to continue volunteering. The end result is a final report and presentation that summarize the survey results and outlines strategic recommendations for program improvement.
