A Fond Farewell: Exiting Volunteers (1/2 day)
There are many reasons why volunteers leave. Perhaps they can no longer safely perform their volunteering tasks, maybe they are not aligned with the mission or culture of your organisation or it could be that other parts of their life need attention.
Regardless of the reason, it is important to effectively manage the exit strategy for volunteers who are saying goodbye so they remember their time positively and, crucially, to ensure, there is no negative flow-on for your other volunteers and your organisation’s image
In this workshop, we look at the reasons why you may need to part company with a volunteer, tricky situations that may arise, how to ease the transition for the benefit of the individual and organisation, and the importance of ensuring volunteers have a fond farewell.
