VO Workshop in Volunteer Management: Volunteer Program Evaluation
Tue, 14 November 2017, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM EST
Program evaluation gives you the information you need to showcase the impact of your services, improve your effectiveness, promote staff development, and provide evidence of your organization’s effectiveness, which can justify your need for further funding and support. It is a process which ideally ought to start before your program even begins, and continue during and afterward. Evaluation can determine what your organization’s needs are, how those needs are being met, and what the overall impact has been.

- Establish volunteer program evaluation benchmarks

- Compare volunteer recruitment methods in practice and determine which ones are most effective for your organization
