The Four R’s of Volunteer Management

Does your organization struggle to find volunteers, keep them around, and motivate them to work toward your mission? You’re not alone. And we’re here to help!

With limited staff capacity, nonprofits often heavily rely on volunteers to support their missions and deliver their services. And when volunteers are utilized strategically, nonprofit programs can truly flourish. But what steps are involved in fully incorporating volunteers—and successfully managing volunteers—at your organization? Join Cindy Fredrick to learn the four R’s of volunteer management:

  1. Role:  make volunteers aware of their vital role
  2. Recruitment: find the people and skills that your organization needs
  3. Recognition:  praise their hard work and keep them engaged with your mission
  4. Great ManageRs: provide needed support and navigate difficult conversations

All nonprofit board members, directors, and staff involved in guiding or managing volunteer programs at their organizations are encouraged to attend.
