Supporting and Sustaining Volunteer Involvement

Keeping volunteers involved can be as challenging as recruiting them in the first place. Retaining their passion and commitment requires ongoing support and communication throughout the organization. This class will explore the following questions:

  • How can we ensure we are meeting volunteer expectations?
  • How do I improve the sense of volunteer-staff teamwork in my organization?
  • How can we let our volunteers know they are valued and appreciated?
  • How do I handle supervision issues?

A portion of the class will be spent on peer-consulting, during which students will problem-solve with each other about real-life challenges they are facing in their organizations.
