Course Description: Volunteers are an integral part of the success of so many organizations. At the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), we rely heavily on and greatly appreciate the contributions to our success through our hardworking volunteers. Over our many years of community service as the District of Columbia's only urban land grant institution, we have learned that proper training of volunteers is critical for the volunteer. Volunteers want to feel competent in their roles, and to know that they are making a contribution by serving their communities in a way that targets their intentions. The CAUSES Volunteer Leaders Training provides a framework of processes and procedures that volunteers in any organization should expect to experience in becoming effective and treasured volunteers. Volunteers will be engaged in activities and group projects that successfully drive home essential concepts that must be mastered before they begin their volunteer service. The program is broken into four separate sessions that includes five hours of face-to-face training, 4.5 hours of Heartsaver® CPR AED training, two hours of online training, and four hours of community volunteering with our CAUSES land grant programs. It is an experiential, engaging training experience that will leave volunteers feeling confident about how to best serve in their capacity as exceptional volunteers.
