Engaging Boomers and New Generations of Volunteers

Is your volunteer pool changing?

Are you seeing more volunteers looking to use workplace skills or looking for shorter term assignments?

Is your organization ready to tap the wealth of volunteer resources offered by Boomers as they retire?

Attend this advanced level interactive workshop to:

  • Learn and practice techniques for re-inventing volunteerism for the new volunteer workforce.
  • Explore how these methods can be used to tap into the potential wealth of volunteer resources offered by the Boomer generation.

You will leave the workshop with an action plan to prepare your organization for Boomers and the new volunteer workforce.
