Event description

Description

Whether you involve one or 1,000 volunteers, this interactive training will help you attract and select suitable volunteers and provide a positive experience for all. The workshop is packed with practical advice that you can use immediately as well as food for thought as you evaluate how you work with volunteers.

This course will take place over two days; 21st and 28th March, from 9.00 - 5.30pm.

Who should attend the Volunteer Leadership Training

Volunteer Leadership Training is suitable for attendees that work in non-profit groups, large or small that currently involve volunteers or are thinking about it. Attendees can be individuals who are paid or unpaid and have direct responsibility for supporting volunteers. The course consists of four modules:

Module 1: Planning for Volunteer Involvement

  • Preparing for volunteer involvement
  • Exploring why people choose to volunteer
  • Identifying and developing volunteer role descriptions

Do you feel your volunteer programme could be more successful? Or, do you want to involve volunteers but do not know where to start? This session will help you to ensure you successfully plan and prepare for involving volunteers in your organisation.

Module 2: Volunteer Engagement

  • Effective volunteer recruitment
  • Application process
  • Screening and selection
  • Interview process

How do you attract volunteers? What do you do if someone doesn’t seem like the right fit? This session will help to ensure you select the right person for the right volunteer role.

Module 3: Day-to-Day Volunteer Management

  • Induction and volunteer agreements
  • Support and supervision
  • Recognition
  • Exit Interviews

Your volunteer starts today! What do you do now? This session will help you put in place a comprehensive management process to ensure your volunteer programme runs smoothly.

Module 4: Dealing with challenging situations & programme development

  • Dealing with challenging situations
  • Benefits of having a volunteer policy
  • Developing your policy

Difficult situations can & do arise. How can you prepare for them? What is a volunteer policy? Why is it important and what should it include? Your volunteer policy does not have to be complicated, but it will be your best friend should things go wrong.
