Event description

Description


United Way of King County logo

All volunteers have skills. What distinguishes skills-based volunteerism is that volunteers use specific skills, credentials, and experience that is less frequently available in the general population. Many nonprofits can benefit greatly from engaging skills-based volunteers. However organizations often lack the knowledge and tools required to do so effectively.

This half-day session will guide you through the basics of successfully recruiting skills-based volunteers and integrating them into your organization. Participants will have an opportunity to explore:

  • Factors important to a successful match with a skills-based volunteer

  • How to effectively plan and collaborate on projects with skills-based volunteers
