Volunteers can be an incredible asset to a nonprofit organization, dedicating time, and talent to supporting the mission of an organization. This session will provide an overview of the foundational pieces of an effective volunteer management program, timely ideas for further developing your volunteer management program (or pivoting to virtual), and trends in volunteer management. Different types of volunteers (e.g., retired professionals, college students) and different types of volunteer experiences (e.g., project based, long-duration) require different recruitment approaches, and during this session we will explore the most common.


  • Learn what it takes to get a volunteer management program up and running including recruiting, engagement, and retention
  • Explore tools and techniques to effectively manage your volunteers and support continued engagement
  • Using a self-assessment tool, identify strengths and opportunities within your existing volunteer management program
  • Gain access to a one-page guide that will support continued learning and idea sharing through free and low cost resources
