Volunteers can bring multifaceted talents to nonprofit organizations.  But a volunteer program must be set up properly in order to benefit the organization and not create burdens on the management and paid staff.

In this interactive two-part webinar program, Anne Abate and Andrew Sanderbeck will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use immediately and cover important information on: 

Starting and maintaining an effective volunteer program in your organization

  • The roles of all staff members in engaging the types of volunteers
  • Minimizing friction between staff and volunteers
  • Making your library a welcoming place for volunteers
  • Valuing volunteers as people first; “free help for the library” second

Beyond the management perspective, we will include the voices of experienced volunteers who will relate the good and not-so-good aspects of the volunteer experience in a variety of settings.
