Developing a Volunteer Culture

Developing an effective volunteer culture can have real benefits for your organisation by ensuring volunteers are genuinely part of the team and contribute fully to achieving organisational goals.

During the course we’ll define organisational culture and consider how changing your culture impacts upon the volunteering experience. We’ll look at real examples of organisations which have developed a volunteer culture and identify practical steps to take to change the culture within your organisation.

This course is the only training currently available in the UK that offers you the chance to focus on developing an effective volunteer culture within your organisation.
