A WORKSHOP FOR PARTICIPANTS WHO WOULD LIKE TO ENHANCE AND REFINE THEIR SKILLS IN MANAGING VOLUNTEERS THAT SERVE IN ONGOING OR LONGER TERM ROLES IN NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS.
It will provide practical and actionable skills in four key areas of volunteer management:
Recruit. Recruiting and ensuring a diverse population of volunteers can be quite challenging – learn strategies for identifying the right volunteers for your organization.
Retain. Retaining those you recruit is also critical to an effective volunteer program. Learn tips to design motivating jobs and prepare volunteers for success.
Reward. Volunteers also should be rewarded – but one size does not fit all. Learn how to navigate the differences between paid staff and volunteers and how to thank them for a job well done.
Repurpose. Learn how to handle difficult volunteers and deal with volunteers who need to be let go.
Participants will learn about best practices in volunteer management. They will learn that volunteers do need to be managed, and the techniques for doing so. Participants will also learn how leverage volunteers’ skills and expertise for maximum organizational impact.
