Cultivating Volunteer Leaders 

September 29 @ 2:45 pm - 4:00 pm

Master Gardener showing an intern how to record plant information.

When gardening, is it the tools and seeds, or the climate and soil condition, that lead to the richest cultivation? The same paradox can be applied to cultivating volunteers. This workshop will focus on many tools and approaches that will lead you to experiencing a rich volunteer network. You will gain awareness of the three major elements of such a network and learn how slight changes in their current program could greatly enhance their volunteer retention, decrease conflict, and improve realized impacts.

Two case studies will be presented, and small groups will engage in discussion regarding the representative networks. Professional and volunteer leaders will gain insight into the construct of power within volunteer networks and participate in hands-on activities determining appropriate responses to inappropriate use of such power. Your toolbox for cultivating volunteers will be full of strategies, options, and suggestions for an endless harvest!
