Event description
Overcoming the Barriers to Family Volunteering

About this Event

Winter is coming and with that comes school breaks and the abundance of good will! Have you ever turned away the prospect of a family volunteering together just because you did not know what might be appropriate for them to do? Have you had ideas, but were not sure what the liability implications might be? Have you wanted to be responsive to donors and parents looking to engage the next generation but struggled with staff buy in?

Join us for a learning session dedicated to overcoming the barriers to family volunteering. We will explore the benefits of multi-generational engagement and different ways to structure opportunities so that they are mutually beneficial to the family, host organization, and communities served! Participants will gain an understanding of how to set volunteer projects up for success, what age appropriate activities might be, and how to mitigate risks associated with youth volunteers.

This workshop is delivered in partnership with United Way of King county, and with support from Volunteer Generation Fund.
