SAVMA connects brilliant folks from across non-profits to work together towards developing stronger volunteer leaders throughout Tucson. It’s a great way to network and learn with peers, to share the struggles we all have, as well as the joys, in a supportive, professional community.

Staff who manage volunteers are so hardworking and deserve some extra support! SAVMA fills a gap for professional development, but also for personal support. When volunteer managers have what they need, the work of volunteers can be even more valuable.
