NGO Volunteer Management Seminar

Sustainable Development Network (SDN)

The Sustainable Development Network (SDN) is a networking nonprofit company which provides access to information, research, publications and best practice case studies related to sustainable development.

Many South African community projects would be non-operational without volunteers. Exploring factors that influence the recruitment and retention of volunteers is valuable in order to develop context-specific guidelines for efficient, time and cost-effective recruitment and retention strategies. This workshop will address all relevant factors from volunteer motivation and expectations, to the organisational support that is required to sustain volunteer participation. Attendees will also have the opportunity to develop their own context specific volunteer recruitment and retention frameworks.

Course Objectives

  • Identify factors that contribute to a volunteer-organisation fit
  • Understand volunteer motives and expectations and how to align these to organisational goals and objectives
  • Develop an effective context specific recruitment and retention strategy by applying the MECS volunteer management model.

Targeted Participants

This seminar will be valuable for managers of volunteers, project and programme staff, MER staff, organisational leaders that would like to include volunteers in their staff complement and support staff that work with volunteers.
