Utilizing Volunteer Skills to Build Organizational Capacity

In order to reach and serve their clients, smart nonprofits utilize every available resource. They strive to fully engage their boards, seek new ways to connect with the community, cultivate new donors and provide customer-focused client services. These nonprofits also effectively utilize volunteer skills and talents to meet their organization’s challenges and leverage its opportunities.

In this half-day session, participants will explore ways to
• Develop mission-focused volunteer positions
• Diversify and expand volunteer opportunities
• Create a recruitment message

Strategically Engaging Skills-Based Volunteers

Participants will:
• Review skills-based volunteer trends and potential
• Identify mission specific skills-based volunteer projects
• Discover the difference between traditional volunteer engagement and skills-based volunteer engagement
• Identify the five principles that make skills-based volunteering work
• Create project management plans
