Volunteer Management 201
Is your volunteer program a powerful part of your lifesaving efforts? Does it effectively engage your community supporters? Done well, volunteer programs exponentially increase your organization’s reach and capacity to help animals. Done not-so-well, volunteer programs can divert energy from meeting your mission and actually create more work. Learn how to maximize the contributions of your volunteers – whether your volunteer program is new and just starting off, established but not quite firing on all cylinders, or somewhere in between.
Participants will learn how to build a strong volunteer management infrastructure from program design to implementation. Discover how the right mix of process and procedures can ensure your animals have the care they need and your staff has the support it needs to succeed.
