The number one question most volunteer program consultants receive is “How do I get more volunteers?” A great question, yet maybe the first question should be “How do I keep the volunteers I have?” This webinar will answer these questions and more. How do you get volunteers to choose your program over others? How do you ensure a volunteer is a good fit – whether the work is good for the volunteer and the volunteer is good for your program? Also, how do you offer volunteers a rewarding experience that fulfills their goals? Come prepared with questions and challenges!
