Volunteers help to keep community organisations sustainable and viable. But volunteer management can be challenging. It requires effective planning in terms of Recruitment, Retention and Recognition – the 3 Rs.
This session will cover the key aspects of a successful volunteer program in terms of the 3Rs. Participants will enhance their understanding of best practice in volunteer management. They will also be given the opportunity to share and reflect on their experiences.
