Volunteer involvement has changed over the past 20 years, challenging leaders to adapt to a savvy New Breed of volunteers. Plenty of volunteers are willing to get involved, but they’ll become involved according to their rules--not yours.
In this hands-on ½ day workshop, Tom will describe seismic shifts that have created a new volunteer culture.
Some of these seismic shifts include the widespread emergence of technology, the episodic volunteer, twitch speed, and the development of a knowledge-based economy.
But Tom won’t leave us is a quandary. He will tell us how we can take advantage of these shifts to mobilize the power and passion of a whole New Breed of volunteers.
Tom offers fresh strategies for volunteer involvement today. You will learn the following marketing, recruiting, motivating, leading and coaching skills.
