About Organizations

October 3, 2017
9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Volunteers gave $21 billion worth of time to California nonprofits in 2014. Is your organization utilizing the huge resources that volunteers can bring to your mission?

Volunteers can help your organization serve more clients, deliver more programs, strengthen your staff, spread your message and increase your financial capacity. But managing volunteers requires good recruitment, vetting, placement, relationship-building and supervision. Volunteer management is especially challenging when you may manage five generations of volunteers. But with good volunteer engagement processes in place, it cannot enrich your mission and services, but also build a team that's a joy to work with.

This workshop will explore the basics of good volunteer management:

  • how to identify the ways volunteers can help your organization
  • how to recruit the right volunteers
  • how to vet, orient and train volunteers
  • how to keep good volunteers engaged
