Event Description

Virtual Volunteerism: Recruiting, Retaining, and Celebrating your Volunteers

Janet Capetty, Founder, Take FIVE Training

Volunteers are the backbone of the charitable sector and provide vital support to help nonprofits conduct programs, raise funds and serve clients. How are you engaging volunteers to meet your mission during these challenging times? While the pandemic has limited the ways in which we can gather and engage with one another in-person, we have an opportunity to think differently and consider ways in which to keep our volunteers active virtually. Don't let the challenges before us limit the ways that your organization activates the generosity, talent, and commitment of volunteer support!

In this session, we will cover:

  • A brief run-down on the fundamentals of excellent volunteer management.
  • When are virtual volunteers right for your organization?
  • What kinds of support can volunteers offer virtually?
  • Tips for successfully manage volunteers that aren’t on site.

Feel free to send questions and comments ahead of the session to:

Please note that a recording of this webinar will be sent to registrants after the event.
