Introduction to supporting volunteers: Plan and Include (Part 1 of Volunteer Journey)

7th July 2021 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

Please note that this course will take place online via Zoom.

A practical introductory course equipping you for your journey to becoming an outstanding volunteer manager and an inspiring volunteer leader.

Course content

This course is for people who manage or supervise volunteers especially individuals who are new to involving volunteers.

The session covers the first stages of volunteer management from preparing for involving volunteers, attracting the right volunteers through to getting them started.

During the Session you will be challenged to think beyond what’s needed for the traditional volunteer, gaining an understanding of today’s volunteers and what your organisation needs to have in place to give them a great experience. Participants will spend time devising a clear action plan for their organisation and volunteers.

Questions you will be able to answer

•       What is Volunteer Management and why people get involved?

•       How to prepare your group to involve volunteers and attract the right kind of volunteers?

•       How to turn interest into action, and get volunteers started in your organisations?

We promote the concept of the Volunteer Journey – Plan, Include, Support and Celebrate and cover this in two courses: Plan and Include (Part 1) and Support and Celebrate (Part 2). We recommend booking both to get the full benefit of understanding the Journey of managing volunteers.

In addition we offer courses on Innovative Approaches to Volunteering, Volunteers and the Law and Dealing with Challenging Volunteer Situations.  These sessions will deepen your knowledge around volunteer management and creating a better experience for you, your volunteers and beneficiaries
