National Volunteer Management Training Programme

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. 

Below you can find details of the four module National Volunteer Management Training Course offered by Monaghan Volunteer Centre. 

This four module (which can also be run as 4 modules over 2 full days or 4 modules over 4 evenings / mornings) is 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. 

Module 1: Planning for Volunteer Involvement

•Preparing for volunteer involvement

•Volunteer motivations

•Identifying and developing volunteer role descriptions

Module 2: Volunteer Recruitment and Selection

Module 3: Day-to-Day Management of Volunteers
