Challenging the Status Quo: Rethinking the Value of Volunteers

What if the way nonprofits and companies are currently engaging volunteers is all wrong? How can we make sure we’re strategically involving the core value of volunteers to provide maximum impact?

This one hour webinar describes the key principles of the Reimagining Service initiative, and provides an overview of research that shows that organizations that strategically leverage volunteers outperform peer organizations on all measures of organizational capacity, AND have greater impact.

A key comment from the webinar: "Organizations that make volunteers central to their work and manage them well are able to generate 3 to 6 times the community value from volunteers as the cost to manage them."

Presenters include Bobbi Silten, President of the Gap Foundation; Amy Smith, Points of Light; Karen Baker, California Volunteers; and Greg Baldwin, President of VolunteerMatch.
