Book now for the Association of Volunteer Managers’ Learning and Development event, ‘Grand design: blueprints for training, funding and demonstrating value‘.
Inspiration for improving volunteer involvement can often seem illusive and out-of-reach when you need it most. Association of Volunteer Managers (AVM) has gathered inspirational designers of training and evaluation so that you can connect with them and have your own light bulb moment.
The first presenter travelled from a blank page to securing funding for a major training project. She’ll share how she did designed the training, including why co-designing it with her volunteers helped drive engagement.
When putting together a case for support you need evidence. But, how can you find the time to fully evaluate your volunteering programme and create compelling recommendations if you don’t have the support you need? The second speaker overcame this challenge by involving specialist volunteers and securing senior management buy-in. He’ll share his designs with you.
Join us for this vibrant and engaging forum where you’ll have the opportunity to connect, learn and share with a wide variety of people involved in volunteer engagement.
