Volunteer Management Training - 14th and 16th March in Castleblayney

Whether you involve 1 or 1000 volunteers, your organisation needs to ensure it manages volunteers effectively - and by that, we mean everything from how an individual volunteer fits in and works along side paid staff (if you have them) to creating and maintaining extended volunteer programmes. Central to any successful volunteering programme, big or small, is effective volunteer management. Monaghan Volunteer Centre staff have been trained to deliver the Volunteer Ireland Volunteer Management Training Programme. The programme consists of four modules delivered in a hands-on, participative style and is designed to provide you with a Best Practice Volunteer Management Framework for involving volunteers in your organisation. Modules Include: Module 1: Planning for Volunteer Involvement Module 2: Volunteer Recruitment and Selection Module 3: Day-to-day Management of Volunteers Module 4: Designing a Policy for Volunteer Involvement This year it takes place in Castleblayney on 14th and 16th March from 9.30 to 4. The cost is only €20 per person and this includes lunch. Places are limited so contact Sinead now to book your place. 047 72191 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
