A good position description can make the recruitment and placement of volunteers so much easier, but this foundation component of a program is often overlooked or put into a folder and never used. 

This webinar will start with the basics of what should be included in a position description and will help you create or update position descriptions for all of your volunteer opportunities. 

Once those position descriptions are created – use them! Learn how accurate and up-to-date position descriptions can help you recruit and train volunteers, and how they can help with retention and the development of leadership positions within your volunteer engagement program. 

What You'll Learn: 
  • What should go into a good position description.
  • Why should you have a position description for all of your volunteer opportunities
  • How can a position description help you recruit and train volunteers?
Supplemental Materials: 
  • Templates and sample position descriptions will be provided.
Who Should Attend: 
  • Nonprofit Volunteer Managers
