Five Good Ideas about Engaging Today's Volunteers


Although close to half of all Canadians volunteer to some extent, the reasons for their engagement are much different than in previous decades. While today’s volunteers still possess a strong desire to make a contribution to the community, they also seek experiences that respond to their personal goals and interests, can showcase and develop their job skills, and grow their professional networks. They prefer short-term assignments that have flexible timelines and seek stimulating experiences where they can directly influence outcomes of projects that really make a difference. With all the legislation and emerging risk management issues affecting volunteer management, how do non-profits respond to the preferences of today’s volunteers, while at the same time ensure reliability and accountability for results? David Allen will share ideas for finding, motivating and retaining enough of the right volunteers to meet the non-profit’s priorities and policies.
