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.

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.
