Volunteer Management Workshop for Stewardship

March 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Want to recruit your neighbors and friends to work on a Stewardship Project? Want to learn more about how to recruit and sustain volunteer interest in your Stewardship Project? This upcoming workshop will do just that!

This workshop is organized into two sessions to help you learn best practices for volunteer managment and then apply those skills to your own project in a hands-on workshop. In the first session, we’ll learn from Wendy Biro-Pollard, a nationally known expert on volunteers and trends in volunteerism. Wendy will present the historical changes in volunteerism, and discuss how recent trends in volunteer engagement are relevant for planning your projects. She will offer strategies for volunteer retention and minimizing attrition.

The second session will be a workshop facilitated by Jo Gammans, TreeFolks Volunteer & Communications Coordinator. Concepts and strategies presented earlier will be applied to your individual projects in a supportive and constructive environment, and Jo will help you figure out the nuts and bolts of integrating volunteers into your project.
