Have you ever spent time and energy recruiting a new volunteer, only to be left frustrated and left scrambling to pick up the pieces? Have you been left thinking that volunteers may not be worth the time it takes to invest in them?

Through an interactive discussion, we are going to learn what it takes to build a volunteer on-ramp. Empowering volunteers to be invested by encouraging them to learn about the heart behind your mission. You will learn the first steps on how to create a culture that encourages and supports continuous volunteer learning, critical thinking, and risk-taking with new ideas. With the goal to engage more people, raise more money, and fulfill your mission.
