Transforming Not-for Profit Organizations

Attend our learning opportunities to build your capacity as a not-for-profit leader. We offer both half-day and full-day workshops.

Leadership Principles is your opportunity to lift your leadership skills and learn how to lead in a not-for-profit environment.

Vantage Point provides consulting services to not-for-profit organizations in a variety of capacities from strategic planning to board retreats.

Join us for BOSS 2018, BC's not-for-profit leadership conference.

Bring Vantage Point to your office with our on-site workshops.

Our Organizational Assessment and Capacity Improvement Planning will determine areas and activities that offer your team the greatest impact.




We’ve all been there… an AMAZING volunteer walks through the front door offering their support. Maybe they’re a professional videographer, or they have a PhD in your issue area, or they’re a marketing expert. So naturally they spend the next day licking envelopes – and then they stop answering your calls, never to return.

Managing volunteers is hard, especially when our organizations only offer a limited number of roles for high-skill volunteers. Vantage Point’s Knowledge Philanthropy approach opens the door to project-based contributions from subject matter experts who guide the work.

Some roles are more defined, with a standard repeatable workflow. The last thing we want to do is create new roles on the fly because that never results in a strategic outcome. So join me in drawing some diagrams!


For our very first panel podcast we are joined by: Veronika Bylicki, Co-Founder and Co-Director of CityHive; Vincent Gonsalves Manager, Communications and Engagement of Mobility Pricing; and Brad Roberts, Director of HR at MPA Society, to share their expertise on engagement strategies for the next generation of not-for-profit leaders.

Our panelists challenge assumptions and recommend practical insights to leverage the perspective, experience, and technical know-how of today’s emerging leaders.
