So many programs and organizations depend on volunteers that have been with them for years. What happens when those volunteers start to get older? If your volunteers are aging, this session can help. Learn strategies for identifying the signs of aging in place - volunteers who continue to do the same work even though their capabilities have changes - and how to start a conversation about that change. Managing the transition as well as creating new options for aging volunteers will be covered, and we'll discuss what to do when the situation can't be solved amicably. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss challenges. 

 

 

What You'll Learn: 

•Understand how volunteers can age in place in programs, and identify some of the signs of a volunteer corps that is aging in place and the risk that aging volunteers can pose to your organization. 

•Create opportunities for aging volunteers to stay engaged in programs while mitigating risk to the volunteers, clients, or the organization. 

•Begin a strategy for discussing the aging in place transition with both volunteers and paid staff members, and learn best practices for diversifying your volunteer corps. 

Who Should Attend: 
  • Nonprofit Volunteer Managers
