Build Staff Buy-In for Volunteer Engagement Often one of the biggest challenges to a new model of volunteer engagement is the resistance of paid staff. Often attitudes and fears of our co-workers prevent us from expanding the work that volunteers do. But, if you've never worked with volunteers before, it can be scary. In this webinar we'll discuss strategies for working with paid staff to engage volunteers in libraries. We'll cover what you can do to alleviate some of those fears and how you can train and support your coworkers as they become responsible for managing volunteers. What You'll Learn: • How to assess the feelings and attitudes of paid staff around working with volunteers. • What does paid staff need to know about working with volunteers. • How to create a communication plan to talk to paid staff about working with volunteers. Facilitator: Jennifer Bennett, CVA - Jennifer Bennett is the Senior Manager of Education & Training at VolunteerMatch.
