Tools For An Effective Volunteer Program

Volunteers provide critical services for non-profit and faith-based organizations, as well as municipalities.

Do your organization have trouble finding volunteers? Wonder how to engage younger      volunteers? Need to identify risks for volunteers that help your program?

Penn State Extension is offering a class for groups that depend on volunteers to help carry out their mission.  The class, “Tools For An Effective Volunteer Program,” will be held on Wednesday, April 29, from 1 PM – 4 PM at the Tunkhannock Library.

Fire companies, faith-based groups, neighborhood civic organizations, youth athletic associations, environmental advisory committees, and many human service organizations are challenged to find volunteers to help carry out their programs.

“Tools For An Effective Volunteer Program” help managers of volunteer programs improve volunteer recruitment and orientation, identify and manage risks, and plan recognition of volunteers’ efforts that are appropriate for both the organization and the volunteers.

Register for the workshop online at http://extension.psu.edu/managing-volunteers.
