The Great Divide: Bridging Intergenerational Gaps to Fully Engage Your Volunteers @ Online
Sep 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This workshop will consider how to successfully implement volunteer succession planning by bridging the gap between millennial and boomer volunteers. By investigating and implementing innovative methods of engagement, your organization can facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience between the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow.

Presenters will explore how to do this by creating desirable, value-added experiences to develop strong volunteer-centred engagement programs that are aligned with the Canadian Code of Volunteer standards (CCVI) best practices.

In this webinar, presenters will also discuss ways to engage the growing population of millennial (and younger!) volunteers such as micro-volunteer opportunities, ambassador programs, and leaders of tomorrow programs, and learn how to connect these successes to the development of a fully engaged volunteer program.

Participants will learn to:

  • Identify millennial volunteers’ expectations and motivations and understand how we need to address this growing population
  • Identify creative ways to add value to your volunteers’ experiences
  • Implement best practices to leverage the unique differences between boomer and millennial volunteers to create a strong intergenerational volunteer program

This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.
