How can you make the most out of the time supporters donate?  And how can you recruit and retain volunteers to increase the impact of your organization?

This workshop is designed for small and mid-sized nonprofits. Whether you want to refresh your memory on volunteer management strategies or learn new ideas to expand your impact, this workshop will help you think through research-supported designs of volunteer programs.

  • The principles and practices of volunteer management
  • The difference between charity-based and transformative service
  • The theories behind social change, serendipitous, and entrepreneurial volunteer programs
