Strategies That Work: Secure Internal Buy-in and Support for Volunteers

Do you feel unsupported and invisible in your work with volunteers?

Do your leaders expect you to do more with fewer resources?
Do you want co-workers to recognize the benefits of engaging volunteers?

Sounds like you need to secure some internal buy-in and support!

Join us virtually for this 1-hour workshop, to hear real-world examples of securing internal support, from volunteer engagement practitioners. We will explore why this kind of advocacy is crucial, identify whose support would be helpful, and discuss how you can raise the profile of your volunteers and your volunteer program!

You will leave with advocacy ideas and first steps you can take, even with limited time and money. Whatever your organization’s size and structure is, there are ways you can start advocating now! Carpe momentum — Seize the moment!
