In today’s world of shrinking resources and expanding community and diversity, today’s nonprofit organizations cannot afford to pass up the opportunities skilled volunteers have to offer.
But what does it take to effectively engage older volunteers given today’s realities? What new knowledge can we tap to make our work easier? How do we connect our missions with the passions of people who truly want to make a difference?
In this inaugural free, three-webinar series, the National Resource Center for Nonprofit Engagement in the Aging Network will begin to answer these questions and more. Join us, and our experts, as we explore new ways of doing business with a focus on giving you practical solutions to your sticky volunteer challenges.
Who Should Attend:
- Existing volunteer program staff who want to improve lackluster support for their program from the inside out
- New volunteer coordinators who want to get started off on the right foot
- Volunteer managers who want to further enhance their strategic alliances with other departments in their organization
- Organizations who want to calculate the true return on investment of their volunteer programs
