Jewish Volunteering Network: Volunteer Management Events Seminar

AVM organisational member Jewish Volunteering Network would like to invite you to join them for expert advice for volunteer managers planning or managing a volunteer befriending schemes.

Not all volunteering roles are regular or ongoing. Sometimes you just need a good team of volunteers to support your one-off events, whether it’s to raise funds or raise awareness. But there are some big differences in how to manage these different types of volunteers. Come along to this seminar to learn about how effective volunteer management can be key to your event’s success.

Topics will include what to ask on a volunteer registration form, what to include in a briefing and how to keep volunteers happy during the event itself. Whether you need a large team of volunteers or just a one or two, you’ll also hear about how JVN can support you with your event.

The training takes place Monday 17th September, 09:00-13:00, JVN, Wohl Campus for Jewish Education, 44a Albert Road, London NW4 2SJ.

Member question: training and induction for retail volunteers

AVM member Tracey Le Gallez, Head of Volunteer Development & Engagement at Sue Ryder Care, has plans to create a new suite of induction and development training for Sue Ryder’s retail volunteers.

Tracey would like to hear from anyone who is able to share how they have approached the following question.

How do you approach training of this type given the risk management climate we are now operating in (safeguarding, GDPR etc.)?

Tracey is aiming to continue involving a diverse group of volunteers and so is eager to have a robust process but one that doesn’t put people off. You can contact her on: [email protected]
