Have a look at the listings below for when and where you can come and see us.
See you soon!
Effective support and supervision of volunteers is key to a successful volunteer programme.
Why? Because it provides an ongoing way of making sure that a volunteers’ needs and motivations for volunteering are being met. These can change over time, and it’s a good idea to keep up with those changes.
Regular support and supervision can also prevent the dreaded volunteer burnout!
So we all know how important it is, yet how should it be done?
During the day we will cover:
- The difference between general support and structured supervision
- Different methods of delivering support and supervision
- Tips on preparing for and running a supervision session
- Practicing some of the skills required to offer volunteers effective support and supervision
- Any concerns you might have on conducting supervision sessions
By the end of the morning, you will be able to identify practical and realistic ways to support volunteers. The workshop will be interactive and will feature exercises which you will explore in small groups.
10am-1pm ‘Support and Supervision of Volunteers’ Workshop (including lunch)
>>> This is BEGINNERS’ level training. This would suit new volunteer managers, and those who have been in the role for a few months.
>> This training is open to volunteer managers everywhere. However, we have a few free places available for Camden non-profits which have no paid staff and are unfunded. 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 13th March 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.
