Developing a Volunteering Strategy

A strategy provides direction, enabling people to work towards achieving organisational goals. This course will address the purpose and benefits of developing a strategy specifically for volunteering.

We’ll look at examples of organisations which have volunteering strategies to learn what works well and consider the best approach to take. Building on your experience as a leader, we’ll talk about how you can influence others and develop a successful volunteering strategy for your organisation.
