Event description

Description


United Way of King County logo

All volunteers have skills. What distinguishes skills-based volunteerism is that they are engaged in roles that use their specific abilities, credentials, and experience. Nonprofits can benefit greatly from engaging skills-based volunteers, but they often lack the knowledge and tools required to do so effectively.

This workshop is delivered in partnership with United Way of King county, and with support from Volunteer Generation Fund. 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 leading to strong matches with skills-based volunteers, and how to effectively plan and collaborate on projects with them once they're onboard.
