Event description

Description

For a busy nonprofit professional, effectively managing volunteers can seem daunting – even challenging – but with a little time and intention you can go from being solely reactive to highly effective at engaging volunteers.

This daylong session will guide you through the critical components of setting a volunteer program up for success. Participants will have an opportunity to explore:

  • The life cycle of effective volunteer management

  • Developing great volunteer position descriptions

  • Recruiting fantastic volunteers

  • Strategic volunteer matching

  • Volunteer orientation and training

  • Building your supervisory skills

  • Recognizing your volunteers

  • Evaluation techniques

  • And resources for future development

Brought to you by the United Way of King County and delivered by 501 Commons, this session is designed to meet the needs of volunteer managers with less than two years of experience in the field or those looking to refresh their understanding of the basics.
