Organisations and their volunteers have rights and responsibilities. Volunteers perform a specific task or role and, in return, the organisation provides their volunteers with a rewarding experience. But it doesn’t end here. There are expectations that need to be considered and met by both sides.
This session will cover the key aspects of a successful volunteer program in terms of the rights and responsibilities associated with both volunteers and the organisation. This interactive session will unpack the definition of volunteering and the principles that underpin it.
