VO Workshop: Volunteer Management 101

October 11, 2017, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Volunteer Mgt 101How long do volunteers usually stay with your program? Do you struggle with keeping them interested, involved and engaged?

This introductory session will take you through the volunteer cycle, including planning, recruitment, orientation, supervision, and recognition. You will learn how all of these stages interlink, and how they all contribute to excellent performance and volunteer retention.

Learning Objectives: use the volunteer cycle framework to

  • Examine current volunteer management practices in your organization
  • Assess which practices can be kept as-is, and which ones could use improvement
  • Propose new activities
  • Create a framework to evaluate your new activities, to verify that they are achieving the desired outcomes
