The Culture of Volunteerism

Statistic show that one-third of all volunteers leave the organization within the first year of service. Have you seen this turnover among your volunteer force and wondered why this is happening? Discover the value of a building a healthy volunteer culture and receive some practical steps for the journey.

Did you ever think that the best thing to hear from a volunteer is, “No”? Building a culture where volunteers are free to set boundaries, hone their natural abilities and serve with passion is not something to be taken lightly. Any organization that relies on the power of volunteerism is invited to join us for a free presentation by Kristy Doyle, volunteer coordinator for Wadsworth, OH. In this dynamic presentation, that is at once fun, engaging and energizing, Kristy will share:

  • The basic principles in building a sustainable and vibrant volunteer culture

  • Creative volunteer recruitment ideas

  • Strategies for healthy volunteer retention

  • Inspiration for developing a thriving volunteer culture for your organization
