Best Practices for Volunteer-Development Sessions
February 5, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-5
Weekly volunteer-development sessions are a recruitment draw for any program, but how do we plan effective ones? Done thoughtfully, such sessions can lead to a life-changing spark for volunteers. This workshop will explore the goals of weekly sessions. We’ll also discuss tried and true session ideas, as well as logistical items to keep in mind so a program’s sessions can shine. There will be time for Q&A with the presenter as well as among the participants to share ideas and encouragement.
