Understanding and effecting real change for success in volunteer involvement




This training for Volunteer Managers will cover:

Understanding & Engaging 21st Century Volunteers – morning

This session will look at some of the key ways in which society is changing and how these changes affect volunteerism. We will discuss what leaders of volunteers can do to update their practices to accommodate these changes, further enhancing their engagement and retention of 21st-century volunteers.

Influencing to make change happen – afternoon

Establishing an effective volunteer engagement strategy is rarely a  subject understood, focused on or taken seriously by senior managers. In this session, we’ll advise participants on how to influence and help their senior leadership gain a new perspective on volunteering and lay the foundation for the effective volunteer involvement.

The learning outcomes for this course are:

  • An understanding of key social trends impacting on volunteering
  • Explore what can be done to respond to these
  • Reflect on the changes that might be needed in our own organisations
  • Examine the importance of a clear purpose for involving volunteers across our organisations
  • Clarify the change you want to see in your organisation and develop an action plan to realise that change
  • Consider how your personal practice can influence change to create a more positive volunteering culture
