Event description

Description

Volunteerism does not happen in a vacuum. Volunteer success depends on effort and commitment from everyone in an organization. Senior leadership need to endorse volunteerism as a key success factor; paid staff need to embrace the opportunity to collaborate with unpaid staff; volunteers need to feel excited by the chance to contribute to your organizational mission. Planning for effective staff engagement will set the foundation for success.


After completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

Understand how volunteer program planning fits into strategic and operational planning for the organization, and why staff support is key
Assess internal (organization) and external (community partnership) needs for a volunteer program
Develop goals and objectives for volunteer services
Identify factors that lead to successful staff buy-in for a volunteer program
Determine elements important to a staff-volunteer engagement plan
