Volunteer Handbook Essentials for Your Nonprofit

February 7

Learn the key components to make your volunteer handbook an effective tool for your nonprofit.

At times, nonprofit organizations do not put enough emphasis on managing and rewarding their volunteers. Volunteers are a powerful group that can help further your mission, become donors, and become ambassadors to your brand and mission. While volunteers are not employees, they do thrive on structure, direction, performance management, and constant and consistent recognition. This topic will provide content, direction, and strategies to build a positive and powerful volunteer handbook for your nonprofit.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to define volunteer policies and procedures.

- You will be able to describe how to set expectations for volunteers.

- You will be able to discuss the importance of volunteer management.

- You will be able to review how to improve your volunteer handbook.
