Volunteer Program Management: Part 1

One core credit toward Certificate in Volunteer Management

This workshop is designed for volunteer managers interested in detailed instruction about how to implement a volunteer program. This class is part 1 of a 4-part series, and it is expected that you sign up for all 4 courses in the same series. This cohort based model will allow participants to dive deeper into the material. 

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 half day session is the first of a 4-part series exploring Volunteer Program Management. Topics covered will include: Volunteer Program design, job descriptions, and volunteer management cycle. Participants are encouraged to bring relevant challenges as we troubleshoot together.

Throughout this series, participants will be able to:
  • Effectively assess current level of volunteer engagement 
  • Recognize the various aspects of the volunteer management cycle
  • Understand the planning process of volunteer management
  • Create an effective volunteer job description
