This webinar is a presentation of readiness assessment tools and strategies for agencies looking to determine how ready they are to engage the “next generation” of volunteers. The more ready the Aging Network is to offer fulfilling opportunities that empower older adults and maximize their leadership skills and experiences, the more aging services can be provided for this growing need.
Participants will learn about the three stages to engaging the “new” volunteer force, with this webinar focusing on the first:
- READY – learning and change
- SET – structure set and plans laid (coming soon!)
- GO – implement strategy and plan (coming soon!)
Participants will also learn, in detail, about the four dimensions of organizational readiness:
- Aptitude for change
- Volunteer engagement requirements
- Relationship framework
- Focus on outcomes
