Build Staff Buy-In for Volunteer Engagement

Often one of the biggest challenges to a new model of volunteer engagement is the resistance of paid staff. The attitudes and fears of our co-workers prevent us from expanding the work that volunteers do. But, if you've never worked with volunteers before, it can be scary. This one hour webinar presented by Jennifer Bennett from VolunteerMatch discusses strategies for working with paid staff to engage volunteers. It also covers what you can do to alleviate some of those fears, strategies for working within a Union environment, and how you can train and support your coworkers as they become responsible for managing volunteers.
