Volunteer Program Management: Part 2

One core credit toward Certificate in Volunteer Management

Workshop Prerequisite: Attendees must have attended Volunteer Program Management: Part 1. This workshop is designed for volunteer managers interested in detailed instruction about how to implement a volunteer program. This class is part 2 of a 4 part series, and it is recommended that you sign up for all 4 parts. 

Are you feeling overwhelmed or lost with the day-to-day operation of your volunteer program? Have you recently been tasked with building a successful volunteer base for your agency? Running a successful volunteer program requires implementing smart management systems and procedures. This full-day session is the second in a four-part series exploring Volunteer Program Management. Topics covered will include: recruitment, orientation, training and knowing your volunteers. Participants are encouraged to bring relevant challenges as we troubleshoot together.

Throughout this series, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the four demographic groups that make up the current adult volunteer population and demonstrate an understanding of their preferred volunteer position
  • Implement the Volunteer Functions Inventory as a tool to measure volunteer motivation
  • Implement five tools for building group cohesion
  • Distinguish between training and orientation
