Successful nonprofit organizations understand that volunteers are more than just “extra hands” who handle low skill and inconsequential tasks. Instead, they are vital to the mission, talented and skilled, and inspiring in their enthusiasm. Volunteers add dimension to our work and, when engaged and managed well, contribute greatly to our organizations’ reach and ability to achieve our vision. Unfortunately while the number of new nonprofits continues to grow substantially, volunteer rates have seen little growth to a slight decline over the past few years. In a period of tremendous social, cultural, and technological changes, nonprofits who fail to understand how how and why volunteers express social responsibility and what they expect in return for their time and talents, will lose valuable resources if they don’t adapt accordingly.

Please join Lynn Ivey, nonprofit consultant, as she leads you through current trends that affect volunteerism, methods for engaging volunteers for the future, and strategies for building stronger volunteer programs. Learn how to adapt and utilize new tools and opportunities to increase your volunteer program’s effectiveness with an eye to the future.
