Engaging Youth Effectively - Thursday, December 5, 2019 (9:30 am - 12:30 pm)

$70 - Regular Rate / $40 - Subscriber Rate

How do you recruit and retain amazing youth volunteers? What can you do to ensure their involvement is meaningful and keeps them coming back for more? In this interactive workshop, we'll explore the steps to bring in and motivate high school volunteers, from recruitment and selection to ongoing retention. Overcome the "40 hour requirement" and create lifelong volunteers through effective youth engagement.

You'll leave this workshop with:

  • An understanding of what Toronto youth are looking for from a volunteer opportunity
  • Tools and tips for recruiting, screening, supervising and coordinating youth volunteers
  • Fresh perspectives on the barriers youth face and how to increase youth access to your volunteer program
