About the Workshop:
Volunteer Resource Management is an art and a science. Think "Human Resource Management," only without the associated paycheck and other HR benefits. How do you motivate people to work for no pay? How do you craft jobs so they fit the person and forward your organization's mission and goals? How do you keep your volunteers coming back? In our short time together, we'll explore a few of the principles and practices that can help you take advantage of the amazing resource that we in nonprofit organizations are privileged to be able to mobilize-the volunteer labor force.
