Volunteers make a critical contribution to the sustainability of the nonprofit sector, enabling our organizations to deliver programming and services, and connecting us to new swaths of the community. It really does “take a village”, and volunteers are an important part of the team.
This is a three-part series; join your colleagues in the arts sector, and learn about traditional and unique volunteer experiences in the arts, and the benefits of creating opportunities for volunteers.
The sessions are as follows:
Session 1 (Oct 5) Seeking Volunteers, Widening the Circle
Who might be an asset to your organization? Looking at ways to create meaningful volunteer opportunities that fit the needs and lifestyles of volunteers including teenagers, youth, and retirees.
Session 2 (Oct 26) Cultivating Relationships
What roles might suit your volunteers best? How to find and keep volunteers. Exploring the relationship between volunteers, donors, and fundraising.
Session 3 (Nov 16) – Nuts and Bolts
Sharing tools and recommended practices regarding volunteer recruitment, management, support and intake. You’ll leave the series with resources and templates to help you grow your volunteer engagement.
This workshop will be hosted via Zoom. Links will be sent out in advance via email.
These sessions will be facilitated by Bettina Ford, Voluntary Resources Coordinator for the Community Sector Council of NL, and Deputy Mayor of Gander.
For the past 17 years Bettina has been employed by the Community Sector Council Newfoundland and Labrador (CSC NL). She provides training on non-profit governance and management and delivers workshops to help organizations in the non-profit and public sectors plan for and engage people in volunteering. Bettina assists with program design and informs research and policy development for the community based sector. An accomplished key-note speaker and presenter at conferences, she is a skilled facilitator who has worked with leaders province-wide, bringing people together to plan, collaborate and build communities.
She is no stranger to the volunteer sector, having served two terms on Gander town council in her twenties and this fall, after a 24 year hiatus, was elected Deputy Mayor. While her history of community involvement is vast, most relevant is her recent participation in a local, staged production of The Vagina Monologues to raise money for Cara Transition House.
Business & Arts NL reserves the right to cancel or reschedule this workshop if necessary.
