Research shows that 60% of people volunteer because someone personally asked them to. But we know that recruiting volunteers is not easy, especially when we look at steadily declining rates of volunteerism, even before the pandemic. In this session we will consider emerging trends in effective volunteer recruitment. We'll explore ideas for leveraging partnerships in our community with clubs, schools, universities, the media, and fellow nonprofits. And we'll highlight potential new avenues to increase the visibility of your organization and raise the profile of volunteering in your community.
We'll hear innovative stories of people who lead volunteers across Minnesota. Come with your questions and experiences so we can learn from each other!
The event will be hosted on Zoom. You will need a computer and a phone as a back-up audio method.
