Tapping Into the Strengths of Older Volunteers Webinar

Volunteers 65+ have been the backbone of organizational volunteer efforts. Historically, organizations have relied on volunteers 65+ to achieve their organizational goals. The Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration recently conducted a research study and published a guidebook on Tapping into the Strengths of Older Volunteers. Participants in this workshop will receive a copy of the guidebook and will learn tips and tools about how volunteers 65+ can be best recruited, engaged and retained as volunteers. The workshop will also cover misconceptions about older volunteers, fostering an inclusive environment for older adult volunteers and methods for adapting during the COVID-19 pandemic. This highly interactive and engaging workshop will provide new insights about the volunteer workforce and will offer strategies for adapting during the pandemic.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn tips and tools for recruiting and engaging volunteers 65+.
  • Develop strategies for retaining volunteer 65+ and debunking common misconceptions about older volunteers.
  • Learn ways to engage volunteers 65+ during the COVID-19 pandemic.
