Volunteers who are well-trained and who understand the organizational context of their role will be more effective and will have more reason to continue volunteering. This workshop will explore orientation and training, and how each fits in with volunteer onboarding. You will come away with strategies to develop orientation and training practices at your organization which are based on current research in adult learning and best practices in the field of volunteer management.
Cédric St-Amour is the volunteer coordinator for Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation, which manages three museums in the Ottawa area: Science and Technology Museum, Agriculture and Food Museum, and Aviation and Space Museum.
