Volunteers are critical for today’s youth service industry. Reduced budgets have forced many organizations to rethink their approach to labor, with more and more organizations looking to volunteers to fill human resource vacancies. At the same time, America is on the verge of tremendous growth in the number of older adult retirees who will continue to be a viable part of the workforce. Within this environment exists an urgent need for practical information regarding ways to connect with and retain quality volunteers.

This course, which is designed for organizational leaders who work with volunteers in a management role and who use volunteers to deliver programs and services, covers the process of volunteer management and development from recruiting and screening volunteers to volunteer coaching and training to volunteer disengagement. Based on the book, Volunteer Development 101: Empowering Organizations to Work With Volunteers by Barry A. Garst, Ph.D., this course provides a basic overview of the volunteer development process, from identifying and screening volunteers to coaching and separating from volunteers. Sample books chapters are provided with the course as part of the additional course exercises.
