Upcoming Trainings Focus on Diversity and Inclusion in Volunteerism

Lisa Joyslin

Many nonprofit and government organizations struggle to engage a volunteer pool that reflects the diversity of the communities they serve. For the past year, MAVA has embarked on an initiative aimed at learning why this problem exists and identifying practical solutions to help civic-minded programs recruit and retain diverse and immigrant volunteers. Please join MAVA for one of two upcoming opportunities to learn about the findings of our research initiative, including new ideas, tips, and stories of success.

On Tuesday, November 14th, we'll host an in-person training event from 1:00 pm-4:30 pm at the Ramsey County Library in Maplewood.

On Thursday, November 30th, we'll host a webinar from 10 am-11:30 am for Greater Minnesota volunteer engagement leaders and others who could not make the in-person training.

We hope you’ll join us for one of these events! Special thanks to the St. Paul Foundation for funding this initiative.
