Volunteers are not free! Although they can add substantial value to your organization through their work and networks, they must be carefully recruited, managed, and rewarded to ensure that the experience is a positive one for both the volunteers and the host organization. This workshop will focus on what needs to be done to ensure that the volunteering experience is a positive one for all involved.
