Event description

Description

Shifting to Engagement is a series of three workshops based on the complete volunteer management cycle. While all three workshops will provide a complete introductory and complementary series, it is not essential to attend all three. Certificates will be issued however if or when all three are completed.

Part 1 - The volunteer landscape is forever shifting and a single traditional approach is no longer a fully effective way to deal with volunteers. Recruiting volunteers is one of the biggest challenges for not-for-profit organizations, so we need to know what motivates the volunteers of today to give their time. This workshop will help you consider the most effective plan for not just recruiting volunteers, but engaging them. It’s about looking at recruitment from two perspectives; not only focusing on what the organization needs volunteers to do (which is very important) but also how individual volunteer can play a unique role in your organization. We will also look at what organizations need to do to make sure volunteers and staff are safe, secure and satisfied during their time spent at your organization. You are welcome to bring other staff or volunteers which may provide you with the perspective to building new foundations for your volunteer program.
