Despite widespread recognition of the immense value of volunteering, the process of managing volunteers effectively can be challenging.
Volunteers are considered the backbone of communities, providing a platform for people of all ages and backgrounds to give back to events and causes that they are passionate about.
Conferences play an important role for many organizations, providing a great opportunity for like-minded people to come together and learn from one another. With slashed budgets and reduced headcounts as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, volunteers are set to play a pivotal role in the delivery of events as organizations lean on volunteers to supplement the reduction in resources.
Whether you’re a small charity or a large event, running background checks for volunteers is an important part of managing your volunteers and is integral to keeping communities safe.
In case you missed it, we recently caught up with Head of Volunteering at Oxfam Great Britain, Elena Laguna on The Engaged Volunteer Podcast.
Volunteers generously donate their time for free. The least we can do is show our appreciation and thanks. Don’t worry. We’re not talking about loud, fancy gifts! Volunteer appreciation can be expressed in so many ways (often just a thank you goes a long way!) and is instrumental in building better relationships with your team.
Volunteers are the backbone of non-profits and with demand on non-profits greater than ever, ensuring that you have a strong volunteer management program in place is essential to your organization's success. But where to start?
In today’s digital world, virtual volunteering is now allowing further opportunities for communities to connect to events and causes they’re passionate about.
New to volunteering? It can be an overwhelming experience trying to find the best place to start when it comes to selecting the right event and/or cause to volunteer with. That’s why organizations need to make sure that their volunteer opportunities are unique, engaging and most importantly, easy to find.
