It’s a new month and that means we have new webinars to share! In January we taught you all about the basics of volunteer management. But this month, we’re shifting gears. In February we’re going to help you step up your game. We’ll tell you how to improve your volunteer management program and which tools you’ll need to be successful.
Here are some webinars you don’t want to miss this month:
What do you do when it’s time to ask a volunteer to leave your organization? This webinar will give you the tools to address challenges around difficult volunteers, including volunteers aging in place and entrenched volunteers. You’ll learn how to minimize these situations in the future by focusing on risk management and other tactics. Suggestions for determining when a volunteer should be terminated, and making it easier on you, other volunteers, and staff will be presented.
In this webinar you’ll learn about including social media in your volunteer recruitment and retention plans. You’ll see examples of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube pages, as well as blogs that other nonprofits have successfully used to draw attention to their organizations and volunteer opportunities. You’ll also learn about the free social media tools available in your VolunteerMatch account.
This webinar is geared towards fighting hunger, but all types of organizations are encouraged to attend. We’ll share best practices for creating listings on VolunteerMatch. You’ll learn how to produce more engaging content. We’ll look at before and after listings, and we’ll discuss how to use our Premium Account tools to pre-screen and get to know prospective volunteers before you talk to them. Sample descriptions, custom questions, and useful examples will be provided.
How long do volunteers usually stay with your program? Do you struggle with keeping them interested, involved and engaged? This webinar will help you think about new strategies and help you evolve your program. You’ll learn how to include new roles and responsibilities for volunteers, pathways for more involvement and leadership positions in your program. Tools to help you evaluate your program implement new ideas will be provided.
