Volunteer Engagement: Recruit, Retain and Secure Staff

Learn successful strategies to bridge the gap between volunteer engagement and retention.

Most nonprofit organizations utilize volunteers, but few have the systems in place to be successful. This material describes the components of a successful volunteer program and what needs to be in place for engaging the community with your organization. This topic also reviews current trends and needs of today's volunteers so the volunteer professional can be as successful as humanly possible. Volunteer programs were set-up to engage a generation that is no longer able to volunteer; learn why your volunteer program and organization needs to change to make your organization a place today's volunteers want to be engaged with.
