Supporting Organizational Staff In Working With Volunteers - St. Paul Location

Two locations:

Trainers from HandsOn Twin Cities and Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration will be presenting at the Northwest Area Foundation and utilizing video satellite capabilities at the College of St. Benedict (St. Ben’s) in St. Joseph, MN. Please indicate whether you will attend at St. Ben’s satellite location or the Twin Cities location for the in-person training.


In many organizations the responsibility for training, supervising and working with volunteers is spread across a number of staff positions in the organization.   However, many staff may not feel confident in supervising others.  This workshop is designed for volunteer managers who want to support staff in effectively working with volunteers. This two-hour “train-the-trainer” session will cover what staff (who are not  the identified volunteer manager) need to know to work successfully with volunteers and tips on how to train staff in the development of those skills.  Volunteer managers will learn how to gain staff buy in, train staff in volunteer supervision, how to help staff deal with challenging volunteer situations and how to build an organizational culture that supports volunteer engagement.


Specifically, the workshop has the following objectives: 

  • Know how to assess staff training needs
  • Understand key content useful to staff in working with volunteers
  • Gain new ideas on how to help staff deal with challenging volunteer situations
  • Feel more ready to support other staff in working with volunteers
