How to Find and Manage Skilled, Pro Bono, and IT Volunteers

Gain a better understanding of how to support and supervise volunteers at your organization.

Volunteers are critical to realizing the visions of nonprofits. Too often, however, organizations stick with more traditional volunteer roles and leave high-value skilled talent on the table. Targeted professional services - in marketing, graphic design, accounting, technology, strategic planning, training design, data analysis, legal, translation, and more - can have a deep impact on your organization's ability to meet its mission and grow. In this topic, you will learn how to find and engage freelance volunteer talent at no cost and with minimal hassle. You will hear examples of successful (and not so successful) projects and what can be done to ensure the best outcomes for everyone. You'll leave with a solid action plan and a toolkit of practical resources for success. With rapidly growing remote and independent workforce, there's no time like the present to use new strategies to engage today's supporters.
