Non-Profit Series: Volunteers, How to Get and Keep Them

Tue 6:45 PM to 9:00 PM

This event has been canceled

Topic: Start-up Assistance

Is now the golden age of volunteerism? More people than ever want to give back to their communities, and volunteer work is encouraged, from the halls of congress to the words and images in the media. Now could be the very best time to take a look at your volunteer program and spiff it up so that your volunteers will want to come and stay. But volunteerism has changed and volunteer expectations have evolved. This seminar will provide you with knowledge of a few things today's volunteer has a right to expect from you. Master these and you will have happy volunteers. Anyone who is willing to volunteer for an organization is likely to have a healthy curiosity and willingness to try new things. Indeed, many volunteers get involved with causes so just so they can learn new skills or about interesting topics and issues. Provide that opportunity. Turning your volunteer job into a mini-educational experience will be highly valued by potential volunteers and will likely result in some great referrals as your volunteers tell others about what a great experience they are having.
