Volunteer Management Training Series - Part 3

DOVIA New Orleans is hosting a six-part Volunteer Management Training Series.

Learn more about how to lead/coordinate volunteers! 

This series was developed by the Points of Light Foundation and is a high-quality, comprehensive set of courses in volunteer management. Emphasis will be placed on learning the steps to successful volunteer program development; developing volunteer recruitment and supervision skills; and planning ways to improve existing volunteer programs.

  • Course 1: Understanding Volunteering-volunteer trends in the U.S.; characteristics of effective volunteer programs; and volunteer motivation models. This course was held on April 30th.
  • Course 2: Planning a Volunteer Program-conducting basic needs assessments; creating volunteer position descriptions; and developing a purpse statement, policies and budget. This session was on May 28th.
  • Course 3: Recruiting and Placing Volunteers-developing volunteer recruitment strategies and messages; accessing underutilized volunteers; and interviewing volunteers for optimal placement. This session will be on June 25th.
  • Course 4: Orienting and Training Volunteers-identifying training needs; building a training session; and effective training delivery. This session will be on July 30th.
  • Course 5: Supervising Volunteers-defining and communicating expectations; supervising and recognizing people with different motivations; and developing a recognition plan. This course will be on August 27th.
  • Course 6: Evaluating a Volunteer Program-deciding what to evaluate; assessing volunteer satisfaction, management and outcomes; and using evaluation information. This is the final session of the series and will be on September 24th.

Janet Pace, Director of Volunteer Outreach for the Louisiana Serve Commission, will be our instructor for the series. In this position, she is responsible for volunteer initiatives and collaboration at the state level. She was most recently the President and CEO of Volunteer! Baton Rouge. During her tenure at VBR!, the agency was named the 2005 National Volunteer Center of the Year by the Points of Light Foundation and also received the National VOAD Long-Term Recovery Partnership Award for their work during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

We hope you plan to join us for some lively discussions! Participants who complete all six parts of the series will receive a Volunteer Program Management certificate and will be given a one year membership in DOVIA New Orleans.

We limited spaces available for the workshops.  Please register early!  Bring a sack-lunch for yourself. We will provide water at the site.

If you have any questions, call Susan Delle Shaffette at 985-674-9049. You can also email her at dovianolamail@yahoo.com. Membership information will be distributed at workshops.

Parking will be available in the Catholic Charities parking lot, however space is limited. Please consider car pooling to help alleviate parking issues. Parking is also available under I-10 if the lot is full. This is not a security supervised location, but it is very close and free. We have also learned that you can park in the train station lot for $3.50 a day (bring 3 dollar bills and 2 quarters).
