Webinar: Building & Nurturing Volunteer Communities

Video Library,

Ensuring that volunteers feel a part of something bigger than just themselves can transform one-time volunteers into truly engaged repeat volunteers. In this webinar recording, you'll discover the benefits of nurturing a sense of community among volunteers and explore seven principles that foster community. You'll gain tips on how to leverage social media, strategically design communications, check-in regularly, and celebrate together – virtually or in-person.

This is a recording of a watch party of a webinar by Beth Steinhorn, President of VQ Volunteer Strategies, a nonprofit industry thought leader. This webinar is available to us courtesy of Sterling Volunteers, which provides discounted background checks for Coalition members.

There were opportunities for discussion during and after the presentation; we talked about how the principles could best be applied to home repair programs. Becca Davis, Executive Director of the Coalition for Home Repair, facilitated the conversation.
