Value of Volunteering - how to demonstrate its impact

11January 201810:00



“Counting volunteers and the hours they contribute are not wrong…..they are just not sufficient enough to tell the stories of the impact of volunteer activities in supporting and delivering on your mission”  - Cheryll Martin, General Manager, Volunteering Auckland

The impact of volunteering within an organisation is often overlooked and left unrecognised. So it is down to you as a Volunteer Coordinator/Manager to start measuring the impact your work makes and also to start shouting about it.

Are you interested in learning more about how to demonstrate your volunteering impact?

The training will help you:

  • Understand what Impact is and the language associated with it

  • Make you start thinking how volunteering fits within your organisation and the difference it makes

  • Increase your awareness of the different methods to identify outcomes and outputs

  • And finally start you on the journey of assessing your volunteering impact

This is a practical training day aimed at giving you new ideas and tools to make volunteer management stand out in your organisation but also give you new skills for your career development.

Who should attend?

The training has been developed specifically for anyone supervising or managing volunteers to give you the confidence and tools to start thinking bigger than just Volunteer Management and start thinking more strategically about impact.
