Managing and supervising volunteers requires systems, processes, policies and procedures but it also requires flexibility. We’ll discuss the “Who, What, When, Where, How” of incorporating flexibility into the volunteer management cycle. This session will also give us the opportunity to consider why we might want to be flexible with volunteer positions. Bring your lunch! Some refreshments provided.

Note: The Nourishing Volunteer Managers Series has moved to Thursdays to accommodate all of our workshops and training programming.

Webinar: The Value of Volunteering

Volunteering reflects our values – what we care about, our vision for our community, our notion of justice, and our sense of responsibility for the planet and all those with whom we share it. Volunteering also generates value for organizations, neighbourhoods, businesses, society, and for those volunteering. How do we demonstrate the complex value of volunteering?

When placing a value on volunteering, it has become common place to use a wage replacement formula, multiplying the number of volunteer hours by an hourly wage (using minimum wage or industry pay rate scales) and to come up with a dollar value for the volunteer time. Others have tried to calculate the fair market value for the service provided (a tutoring session, a meal delivered, a strategic planning session facilitated). While talking about the thousands, millions, or billions of dollars worth of time or service given captures peoples’ attention, it still falls short of capturing the full story. This webinar will provide an overview of the models and tools available to measure impact, provide highlights from the Conference Board of Canada’s recent discussion paper, The Value of Volunteering, and introduce participants to the Value of Volunteering Wheel, launched during National Volunteer Week 2018.
