Volunteer Recruitment and Retention
Volunteers are the lifeline of our communities and non-profit organizations. Their importance often means they are highly sought after and hard to find. Many communities find the same people helping out in multiple groups and would like to find more people to support the fact that many hands make light work. This course will provide creative ways to recruit new volunteers; ensure your organization supports their willingness to help through clear and concise roles and responsibilities; prevent burnout and encourage retention; and create a volunteer culture that promotes and supports goals of your organization.
