Engaging volunteers is a mix of art and science. On one hand, you’ve got the social aspects of working with people who aren’t getting a paycheck and on the other, you need to have systems in place to manage many moving pieces. In this webinar, we’ll go over the volunteer management cycle and understanding volunteerism before exploring best practices in recruitment, database options, and risk management necessities.
You will be able to:
- Begin building a vocabulary for why volunteers are important to your organization’s mission
- Understand basics of position description design and volunteer recruitment methods
- Consider options for volunteer databases
- Recognize and plan for acceptable risk when involving volunteers in your work
