Supervising Volunteers: Motivation, Benchmarks and Accountability
Supervised volunteers are successful
Event Description

Presented by Becky Lunders

Supervising volunteers is not much different than supervising employees, except that volunteers don’t get paid. And, they show up because they want to, not because they have to. Because staff is still accountable for reaching goals, it’s essential that we know what volunteers are working on, and what kind of progress is being made. Supervised volunteers are successful volunteers.

This workshop provides insight on:
• how to motivate volunteers to do what they do, and do more;
• how benchmarks are critical to guide volunteers and ensure the project is on track;
• what you can do to hold volunteers accountable and build relationships at the same time.
