Event description
Effectively Engaging Skills-Based Volunteers

About this Event

All volunteers have skills. What distinguishes skills-based volunteerism is that they are engaged in roles that use their specific abilities, credentials, and experience. Now is more important than ever to harness the power of skills-based volunteers.

This session will guide you through the basics of successfully engaging skills-based volunteers at your nonprofit. Participants will have an opportunity to explore topics such as:

  • factors unique to skills-based volunteerism
  • creating strong matches
  • effectively planning and collaborating on projects
  • ways to engage volunteers virtually
  • additional tools and resources to support your volunteer program

This workshop is delivered in partnership with United Way of King County and 501 Commons and with support from Serve WA and the Volunteer Generation Fund.
