Volunteer groups and one-time volunteers present unique challenges, whether they are from a business, club, or school. These volunteers don't become part of your regular team, and don’t have time for steep learning curves or intensive training. But they still want to make a real impact with their donated time.
Join this discussion around how to make volunteers become champions for your organization with presenter Jennifer Gormley, Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator with Lawrence Humane Society.
In this webinar, you will:
- Use given samples of specific tools and methods, as well as idea-sharing with the group to define process and strategy for win-win volunteer groups and single days of service
- Build a running list of meaningful projects with diverse staff input -- even if staff is resistant at first
- Increase both impact and motivation, leading to lasting relationships and strong word-of-mouth champions
- Determine your organization's definitions of success for volunteer groups and single days of service
- Streamline your communications process from inquiry to follow-up
- Address challenges such as last-minute changes, groups that don't follow through, legacy groups that are used to doing things a certain way, lack of organizational buy-in, and more
Live attendance is limited, but all registrants will receive the recording afterward.
