Movements require motivated, trained, and well-supported volunteers to do their work successfully. This class will explore the basics of volunteer engagement – recruitment, involvement, retention, and recognition – that can help take our organizing to the next level. We will discuss best practices as well as some of the common challenges of volunteer management. No experience necessary – everyone can learn how to engage volunteers in the work we are passionate about!
