Most people would agree that financial resources of an organization need to be carefully managed, yet we largely take for granted that the volunteer resources available to an organization will somehow take care of themselves. To the contrary–many nonprofits have learned that they require (+ deserve) even more time and nurturing! Being attentive to these human resources can contribute to greater success in other areas, including: grant-seeking, donor cultivation, program delivery, reputation building, and community impact.

The adoption of a few consistent practices is critical to ensure that volunteer efforts align with, and effectively support, the mission of the organization, or cause, they seek to serve. Without it, a volunteer’s work may prove ineffectual or counter-productive; the agency can suffer from wasted resources, duplicated efforts, and lost credibility; and the volunteer can become disillusioned and discouraged. So what makes for a good–or effective–volunteer program?
This webinar will cover the essential elements that underpin successful volunteer engagement initiatives. Key competencies we’ll explore include strategies to:
- ensure organizational readiness
- onboard + prepare volunteers for their roles
- manage + sustain volunteer involvement
- document impact
All participants will receive: instructions to access the live webinar, preparation tips to make the most of the live call, a recording of live event, and a mini action kit that includes helpful resources to help you put what you learn into practice.
Advance registration is required.
