Growing Effective Volunteer Programs Webinar Series

The most productive and sustainable nonprofit volunteer programs are ones which are mutually beneficial for the organization and volunteers. In this webinar series, you will learn best practices and tips for everything from planning your program and preparing for volunteers, to recruiting, screening, placing, orienting, training, supervising and retaining volunteers—all with an eye toward ensuring the needs of your organization, and the volunteers, are being met.
