Engaging and staying connected with your volunteers is critical, and particularly if they are working distantly or not able to volunteer at this time. This workshop will help you better understand volunteer retention and how to create a meaningful connection with your volunteers.
When it comes to volunteer retention our minds often jump first to our own capacity, and what our organization is capable of achieving when it comes to retention. But it's important to look at retention from the volunteer's perspective.
We know from the research that the number one reason people want to volunteer is to make a difference in their community. The next most popular reason is to build or develop skills and expertise. As a leader of volunteers you will be a catalyst for this action. You can be the bridge between people who want to see a change in the world and your organization (or group) which has the resources and the mandate to make that change happen.
By offering an opportunity to affect change, and create a meaningful experience for your volunteers, you will see your volunteer retention strengthen.
This workshop will examine the steps to creating a meaningful connection with volunteers, what motivates volunteers, and what factors impact the volunteer's decision to leave the organization.
