SUMMARY: Volunteers bring a passion to victim service organizations, and their mindful management can be a key strategy in extending an organization’s mission and scope of services. This training will focus on the importance of volunteers; how to recruit, screen, onboard, and retain them; and how to determine the costs associated with managing volunteers. The training is designed for current or aspiring volunteer managers in either VOCA-funded or non-VOCA-funded victim service agencies.
This free training will be delivered online over the course of 3 weeks, beginning on February 4, 2019. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a facilitated webinar. In addition to participating in the webinar, you should expect to spend about an hour each week completing assignments, reading articles, or watching videos. CEUs will be awarded.
