5 Useful Presentations about Volunteer Engagement from SlideShare

5 useful presentations about volunteer engagement from SlideshareSlideShare could be one of the most overlooked resources for nonprofits. I mean, when I search “volunteer” on the site, I got over 100,000 results.

What’s great about these presentations is you can explore them at your own pace in your own time, and still get the main takeaways of the original presentation. Here are a few of the truly useful ones I found during my own browsing session:

Build Staff Buy-In for Your Volunteer Engagement Program

by VolunteerMatch

Is your organization open to engaging volunteers in new ways? Often, one of the biggest challenges to a new model of volunteer engagement is the resistance of paid staff. Attitudes and fears of our co-workers can prevent us from expanding the work that volunteers do. This presentation includes strategies for working with paid staff to engage volunteers. It covers what you can do to alleviate some of those fears, strategies for working within a Union environment, and how you can train and support your coworkers as they become responsible for managing volunteers.
