Re-Energize your Volunteer Program by Designing Mission-Driven Opportunities (Free webinar)

This is a free webinar from VolunteerMatch.

Too often organizations look at volunteer engagement as something that's nice to have, and never realize the true potential of volunteers. But, our organizations become more successful, responsive, and effective when we look at volunteers as a key component to our organization's success. In this session we'll discuss creating a connection between the work volunteers do and the mission of your organization. You'll learn how to design volunteer opportunities with real impact, and how to tell the story of that impact both within your organization and to your community. Attendees will leave with sample mission-driven position descriptions and a worksheet to help craft their organization's story of volunteer engagement.

What You'll Learn: 

  • The impact that language and clear impacts can have on volunteer recruitment and engagement
  • How to create opportunities with your mission and impact in mind

 
Supplemental Materials: 

  • Sample Mission-Drive Volunteer Positions
  • Mission-Driven Volunteer Opportunity Worksheet

Who Should Attend: 

  • Leaders of Volunteer Engagement
  • Volunteer Program Managers
  • Volunteer Recruiters
