Volunteer Orientation and Training: Essential for the Success of Your Volunteers & Mission

Volunteers are essential to the work of almost every nonprofit organization – whether working in back office or front line roles. Sometimes, however, volunteers do not receive the initial training and orientation they need in order to be successful which can ultimately undermine the success of your mission even before they get started. Smart nonprofits know the value of their volunteers – and that helping them to be successful from their first assignment to their last will depend on the effort put into the initial training and orientation they receive.

All too often though, volunteer orientation and training are steps left to chance at busy nonprofits. This poses risks to the volunteer’s experience, to the clients served, and to the agency itself. A strong orientation and training program ensures volunteers have a sound foundation to start their work, makes them more productive over time, and keeps them engaged with the organization longer. But, this process doesn’t have to be dull, tedious or inflexible.

Please join Lynn Ivey, nonprofit consultant, as she leads you through the steps in designing and implementing a volunteer orientation and training program that addresses what is important in your organization. Learn how to welcome your new volunteers with an efficient orientation process, and how to design both an initial training program and an ongoing education plan.
