What motivates your organization to run programs with volunteers? The volunteer workforce can be an important resource to support your nonprofit’s programs and mission. How can you make the most out of the time supporters donate? And how can you recruit and retain volunteers to increase the impact of your organization?

This workshop is designed for small and mid-sized nonprofits. Whether you want to refresh your memory on volunteer management strategies or learn new ideas to expand your impact, this workshop will help you think through research-supported designs of volunteer programs.

Attendees of this workshop will learn:

  • The principles and practices of volunteer management.
  • The difference between charity-based and transformative service.
  • The theories behind social change, serendipitous, and entrepreneurial volunteer programs.
  • The seven steps of the human resource management model for volunteer management.
  • The workshop is designed to be interactive for you to share your own successes and challenges. Learn from the presenter and your peers in this engaging, two-hour workshop on volunteer management!
