Skilled Volunteer Engagement

Volunteerism is changing and new volunteer trends offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to harness the skills and talents of new generations of volunteers.

Join Beth Steinhorn, President of VQ Volunteer Strategies (formerly JFFixler Group), in exploring the latest trends affecting how organizations attract and engage volunteers.

Discover what your organization can gain by shifting from a traditional culture of volunteer management to a more robust culture of volunteer engagement where volunteer skills help you achieve your mission.

Get a taste of some possible new volunteer roles, explore what it means to pilot change in your organization, and consider shifting toward a more collaborative working relationship with skilled volunteers.

The webinar will include information on how your organization can apply to participate in HIVE (High Impact Volunteer Engagement), an exciting initiative to explore and apply best practices in skilled volunteer engagement. The Center will be accepting applications to participate in this 9 - 12 month project where VQ Volunteer Strategies will provide training, coaching and technical assistance for up to 15 nonprofit organizations. Through the HIVE initiative, participating organizations will enhance their volunteer engagement efforts and increase their ability to fulfill mission and thrive.

We encourage you to view this webinar as a team if you are planning to submit an application for the HIVE initiative.
