Date: Tuesday, 8-14-2018 at 9:30 AM to Tuesday, 8-14-2018 at 4:30 PM


Volunteers can support your organization in a myriad of ways: time, resources, connections, and more. But how do you create and maintain a strong volunteer program which meets the needs of your agency while ensuring that volunteers are happy and engaged? The first half of this interactive workshop we will discuss best practices for the basics of volunteer engagement, such as:
Volunteer recruitment
Volunteer intake (application, interview, background, check, etc.) and orientation
Volunteer job descriptions, handbooks, release forms, and other essential documents
Volunteer retention and appreciation

For the second half of this workshop, Nancy Foster, MCADSV Education Director, will focus on grant reporting and facilitate an interactive discussion on strategies for meeting MCADSV Training Standards.
