Now What? Emerging Strategies for Leading Volunteers in a Post-Pandemic World

Volunteerism in 2023 is facing a unique set of circumstances: A decades-long decline in volunteer engagement was exacerbated by the 2020 pandemic, and new conditions are shaping the volunteerism landscape as volunteers, and groups engaging volunteers, adapt to a post-pandemic environment. How are you responding?


Join MAVA staff and stakeholders to explore findings from MAVA’s latest field-based research report, "Post-Pandemic Volunteerism: Trends and Strategies for Volunteer Engagement in 2023 and Beyond". This workshop will share findings from MAVA’s 2021 and 2022 surveys of volunteer engagement leaders, which uncovered eight emerging trends shaping the current volunteerism landscape, from shifts to virtual platforms to limitations of current volunteer recruitment methods. The report also offers four key strategic recommendations for taking charge of changing conditions and elevating volunteer engagement to meet this moment.


During this interactive workshop, we’ll call on a panel of active volunteer engagement leaders to share their perspectives on the impact of trends they see in their organizations. We’ll also provide extended time to connect with peers to exchange ideas on what’s working, and dream about ways to build on each other’s successes.


You’ll gain a better understanding of what drives volunteers today, explore how emerging trends can guide development of new tactics, and leave with actionable strategies to lead innovation in volunteerism at your organization.
