National Community Tax Coalition Training: Volunteer Recruitment & Retention Training Series

Volunteers are a big part of our tax sites’ operations. Without the assistance of our volunteers we would be unable to meet our organizations’ goals and missions. Yet, volunteer recruitment and retention seems to be a challenge year after year in the VITA community. This three part training series will look into three different potential sectors for recruiting and retaining volunteers.

Part III: Partnering with Public and Private Sector Organizations

Date: Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Time: 3:00pm EDT; 2:00pm CDT; 1:00pm MDT; 12:00pm PDT
Length: 60 minutes
Format: Web seminar/Audio Conference
Fee: Free for paid affiliates/$25 for non-paid affiliates

Did you know you can find potential volunteers anywhere? All you need to do is ask! This training will look into how you can partner with businesses, government agencies, other non-profits, and more! You never know how your next volunteer will find you, so this session will help you cover all your bases. We’ll give you recruitment ideas, best practices in building partnerships and even a few key points on retaining the volunteers you just recruited.
