Event description

Description

Have you wanted to engage volunteers effectively for your organization, but you’re not sure how to go about it? Have you recruited volunteers, but then didn’t feel ready for them when they showed interest? This workshop focuses on the skills, planning, and support needed to harness the full potential of a volunteer, and even more importantly, how to maintain their commitment, interest, and investment in your nonprofit.

In this workshop we will explore:

  • How to conduct a volunteer needs assessment;
  • Shaping volunteer opportunities to meet your organization’s needs;
  • Learn how to cultivate and retain volunteers, and how to create a meaningful experience for them;
  • Discover how to facilitate a volunteer's connection to your organization;

This workshop is best suited for:

  • Entry-level Volunteer Managers
  • Staff new to volunteer management

Center for Non-Profits members can attend CNPO/SC workshops at a discounted price of 35%. Contact Debbie Duncan at debbie@njnonprofits.org for the discount code.

Facilitator:

Gil Gordon

Gil Gordon was founder of Gil Gordon Associates in Monmouth Junction, NJ, a management consulting firm specializing in telecommuting-telework-virtual office and other alternative work arrangements, and in strategic employee retention. He is now officially retired but is busier than ever with various volunteer activities. He has a B.S. in Business Administration from Northeastern University and an M.S. in Organizational Behavior from Cornell University. Before starting his consulting business, he worked for almost ten years in Human Resources with Johnson & Johnson. He has been extensively involved as a volunteer with nonprofits in the greater Mercer County (N.J.) area for more than twenty years as a volunteer and leader. His positions included construction worker and interim construction supervisor at Habitat for Humanity in Trenton, former board member and board chair of VolunteerConnect, board member and president at The Jewish Center in Princeton, board member with Jewish Family and Children’s Service and a member of the "Chore Corps" for its Secure@Home program that enables seniors to age in place, and board member of the Cornerstone Community Kitchen at the Princeton United Methodist Church. He also sits on the Biomedical Ethics committee at University Medical Center of Princeton and on the board of NJ Goals of Care, whose goal is to strengthen communication between health care providers and patients nearing the end of life to eliminate burdensome care, improve quality of life, and ensure that treatment decisions focus on patients’ goals. His most important volunteer position these days is as grandfather to three of the world’s cutest grandchildren.
