Volunteering in the U.S. is at a 12-year low, with less than one in four people regularly volunteering in their communities. This low number of volunteers is compounded by the unfortunate reality that one-third of all volunteers who volunteer in one year do not continue to volunteer in the following year. Far too many organizations focus on recruiting new volunteers to meet their needs when the solution could simply be in doing a better job of retaining existing volunteers.

 

During this webinar, participants will:

 

1.  Identify the reasons why volunteers stop volunteering;

2.  Examine the characteristics of the types of volunteers who are most likely to continue volunteering; and

3.  Develop strategies for improving volunteer management and recruiting practices that result in increased volunteer retention
