Growing Great Volunteer Teams Event

November 28, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm



Join us for an event to celebrate Managers of Volunteers in November


Volunteer Nelson has organised for premium not for profit training provider, Exult to do a half day training session on ‘Growing Great Volunteer Teams’. This will be followed by a tasty lunch and a chance to network and chat. This event is subsidised by Volunteer Nelson meaning a 4 hour training and a delicious lunch for only $20!! We really want to bring you together around this key topic and at the same time, celebrate the good work that managers of volunteers do.

The Growing Great Volunteer Teams Event is 9.30am – 2.30pm, Wed 28 November at the Trafalgar Pavilion. It is open to all people across the Top of the South with an interest in creating, managing or leading volunteer teams. We have some provision to help with petrol costs if you are coming from further away. If you have any barriers to attending, please get in touch and we’ll see how we can help. Register now


More about the training: 

When it comes to volunteering, people are spoiled for choice. There is no shortage of

organisations to get involved with, so in order to attract volunteers and keep them on-board,

you need to offer the best possible experience. Learn what drives people to volunteer and

discover simple strategies for ensuring your volunteers get what they need to stay involved.


In this workshop you will discover:

> If your organisation is ready for volunteers.

> What things do you need to have in place before you start recruiting?

> How to ensure your organisation offers a good fit for volunteers.

> Is there more than one model of volunteering and should you even care?

> What do different generations expect from their volunteer experience?

> The difference between recognition and appreciation.

> What do volunteers really need and how can you give it to them effectively?

> Why a great Volunteer Experience is your best recruitment tool (and how to make the most of it)

>  How to grow a positive environment for your whole team.
