Volunteers are often the lifeblood of a nonprofit organization: they fill much-needed roles, serve your clients, and are often the face of your organization. But finding, managing, and retaining can be a job in and of itself! Whether you have a full-time volunteer coordinator or share those responsibilities with the rest of your department, this webinar will help you streamline your volunteer management. In this presentation from the President of VolunteerLocal, you’ll learn skills like:
- Recruitment: how to ask people to work for you without pay
- Scheduling: how to leverage skills and set up shifts that make sense for your event
- Management: how to align incentives and create a feedback loop
- Retention: how to nurture relationships and create a volunteer community
