Finding it difficult to recruit volunteers for roles which previously were easy to fill? You’re not alone…
Volunteering programmes have become more formalised over the years, and most are developed around what the organisation needs. However, the landscape is changing and the generation of volunteers that were able to commit to regular, ongoing volunteering roles are few and far between. This trend towards volunteers looking for a different experience to what is traditionally offered is fast becoming the norm.
Join us to consider the ways in which we can reshape the way we involve volunteers for what volunteers want now.
During the day we will cover:
- The reasons behind this trend towards more flexible, episodic volunteering roles
- How you can make those changes to your volunteering roles
- Tips on things to avoid (because they are off-putting)
- What you need to keep, because it works and / or cannot be changed
- Any concerns you might have on making changes
- Looking at local roles where this new volunteering model works well
By the end of the morning, you will be more aware of what volunteering are looking for, and ready to take the next steps to making a change in your organisation. All of our workshops are interactive and feature exercises which you will explore in small groups.
10am-1pm ‘FutureProofing: Reshaping Volunteer Involvement’ Workshop (including lunch)
>>> This is INTERMEDIATE level training.
>> We have a few free places available for Camden non-profits which have no paid staff and are unfunded. We also have free places for non-profits in this area of benefit. Get in touch with Rupal by email if this applies to your organisation.
> We will provide food and drink with vegetarian and meat options. However, if you have any special dietary requirements please come prepared personally.
Book your place now via Eventbrite.
We look forward to seeing you on the day! 🙂
Want to volunteer in Camden?
Come and see us at our office in Kentish Town on Tuesday 31st July between 12 and 2pm. We will be on hand to help you do a search for volunteering in Camden (and a bit beyond), as well as answer any questions you may have about volunteering.
Please note: Our drop-ins are for people who need extra support to get started with their volunteering. People who get the most out of drop-ins:
- need extra support to use a computer
- are not sure what they would like to do as a volunteer – and would like to talk about the options available before they apply
- are unable to access the internet elsewhere
There is no need to book. Just drop in! 🙂
Volunteer Centre Camden is at 2 Grafton Yard, London, NW5 2ND. Check out this link to a map of where we are with directions on how to get here.
Please note: If you have access to the internet, are comfortable using computers and you know what you want to do as a volunteer then you can do an online search now via Volunteer Connect – and there is no need to come to the drop-in.
