Effective Volunteer Engagement
How do we attract and engage motivated volunteers who will further our charitable work? We will consider motivation, from the benefits of volunteering to our needs and the effort required to manage/support volunteers. No prior knowledge expected—We'll start with fundamentals. Participants will come away with a position description template and strategic approaches for customized volunteer recruitment and engagement.
