Minneapolis-St. Paul Campuses Earn Prestigious “Service Enterprise” Volunteer Certification

SE_CERTIFIED_LOGO_15_17Jeremiah’s Minneapolis-St. Paul campuses have been certified by Points of Light as a “Service Enterprise.” A Service Enterprise is an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills throughout its organization to successfully deliver on its social mission.

Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.

Jeremiah Program Minneapolis-St. Paul completed an extensive assessment, more than 20 hours of training and consulting and extensive internal planning and change to better integrate volunteers in our day-to-day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, we are now better equipped to leverage the time and talent of volunteers and better meet our mission.

More than 1,200 volunteers throughout Jeremiah’s enterprise contribute nearly 20,000 hours annually to support the transformation of low-income single moms and their children.
