Volunteers are part of the DNA of every type of nonprofit.  You need to take this labor force as seriously as you do your paid staff if you want to maximize the benefit to your organization and the volunteer and ensure that the experience is a win-win, instead of a loss-win.  Whether or not your organization has a dedicated volunteer manager, you must be intentional in your use of volunteers and have a formalized recruitment, engagement, and retention program.  As we operate in a post-COVID world, you will need to reimagine your strategies for volunteers for the safety, comfort, and benefit of all.

This class will guide you in the development of a program scaled to your organization’s capacity that will advance your organization’s mission, have a positive impact on staff and clients and provide volunteers with satisfying experiences.  It will explore how to appeal to different motivations, cultures, and generations so that you’re tapping into a wide range of volunteer talent. It will show you how to keep volunteers engaged and motivated so that high-performing volunteers don’t seek more rewarding experiences elsewhere, and it will suggest new ideas for recognizing and rewarding volunteers.  After all, volunteers are like donors: you want them coming back.
