About this Event

Volunteer Manager Workshop: Identify, Define & Pitch Your Skilled Volunteer Opportunities

Overview

Are skilled volunteers and important part of your organisation’s volunteer program? Are you looking to harness the skills of local professionals for short-term, specialised projects?

Identify, Define & Pitch Your Skilled Volunteer Opportunities Workshop is your opportunity to develop and refine your approach to attracting skilled volunteers for your organisation.

Workshop details

This workshop will be delivered by the Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre (BVRC) in partnership with Non Profit Training. The workshop will be facilitated by Dana Hughes, who has 25 years of facilitating and coaching local community groups, councils and not for profit organisations in conflict management, team-building, interpersonal skills, strategy and planning, mentoring and professional development.

During this half-day interactive workshop, you will:

• build your skills in attracting and pitching opportunities to skilled volunteers online and face-to-face

• understand how to best engage, influence and/or gain approval from colleagues and senior staff members to shape and create skilled volunteer roles
