About the Workshops

The Grassroots Growth team is working hard to develop four training workshops to help grassroots groups effectively manage volunteers. You can attend our workshops from A to D to take you from starting your organization through to coordinating a large number of support volunteers, or pick and choose from the topics that are most relevant to you right now. Workshops will cover issues relevant to grassroots groups in Ontario today, including governance structures, volunteer burnout, and volunteer recruitment and retention – all from a grassroots perspective.

As a participant, you can expect to learn from your peers, think critically about and learn how to adapt traditional ways of managing volunteers, and develop a volunteer coordination strategy that works best for you and your grassroots group.

Have Your Say

By attending the pilot workshops, you’ll be able to help shape the structure and content of the training sessions, which will officially launch in September 2016 and run through to March 2017. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to include your voice in our project!


Managing the Core

No, this workshop isn’t about exercise – it’s about taking care of core volunteers, those wonderful people who take on leadership roles in a grassroots group. Because core volunteers are typically a small group (and often a group made up of friends and family), they’re particularly at risk of encountering interpersonal conflict and becoming overwhelmed. This workshop will look at strategies for managing conflict and avoiding burnout. It will also discuss ways that core volunteers can work productively together, including tips for holding meetings that stay on topic, setting boundaries, and how to proactively plan for that moment when a core volunteer decides move on from the group.

This workshop is perfect for: New and established grassroots groups who work closely with friends and family members, and anyone who wants to learn how to proactively manage conflict and burnout.
