How do you know if your volunteers are benefitting from orientation, and, more importantly, enjoying it? What will your volunteers learn next after they’re oriented? What can you do to provide training that is meaningful, engaging and impactful? This workshop will give you the tools you need to plan informative and enjoyable orientation sessions, appropriate and engaging training opportunities and ongoing training to continuously improve your volunteer program.

You'll leave this workshop with:

  • An understanding of the three main types of volunteer orientation
  • Tools & techniques for planning engaging orientation sessions
  • An assessment of necessary training for your volunteers
  • Ideas and templates for planning initial, ongoing and additional training
