Core Skills in Volunteer Management: Unit One - Involving Volunteers

Using volunteers within your organisation not only means you can achieve more but involving volunteers brings a unique added value to any organisation. Good volunteer involvement pays huge dividends but it needs a good solid foundation to make it work well. If you want to make sure your practice is as good as it can be, this course is for you.

During this course you will explore the benefits of working with volunteers, how to manage volunteers with different motivations, the importance of having formal structures including how to develop a volunteer policy, creating volunteer agreements and task descriptions and the basic requirements to keep you and your volunteers safe.

Developed by volunteer managers for volunteers managers these courses explore the theories and put them into practice. Our courses are interactive, challenging and entertaining. There is lots to learn and lots of experience to share.
