Attracting and Managing Volunteers

Finding and keeping effective teams

Volunteers are essential to most community organisations, and effective management is vital to attracting and retaining volunteers. This course provides tools to assist supervisors in community organisations.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of many community organisations, and managing them effectively is every bit as important and challenging as managing paid staff.

  • Understand why people volunteer
  • Structure a great volunteer program
  • Types of volunteering
  • Volunteer policy
  • Better job descriptions
  • Selection and job-matching
  • Preparing and inducting volunteers
  • OHS and legal issues with volunteers
  • Managing performance

This course includes

  • Engaging, up-to-date materials.
