Here’s How to Launch Off Effective Volunteer Partnerships

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Were you there? At the celebration of International Volunteer Managers Day with the National Council of Social Service and Volunteer Management Practitioners (VMPs) last Friday?

We have also prepared a special “gift”; a tool, for VMPs to help them launch off volunteer partnerships well. See below for more information.

How it all Started for James

Our Lead Thrive-Synergist, James, who is also the VMP for SHINE Children & Youth Services joined in the celebrations. He was also featured in the NCSS appreciation video as he shared about his journey as a VMP.

If you have missed it, you can also catch the full 4 mins sharing as James shares about how he started with his Volunteer Partnerships career, what the traits that could help a VMP to be effective and thrive etc.

How You can Start Effective Volunteer Partnerships too

The key to keeping good volunteers is not just volunteer retention, but good volunteer role design. As VMPs navigate the post-COVID-19 world to brainstorm ways to partner volunteers in meaningful ways to create social impact, we spent time to develop a simple one-pager Volunteer Role Design cheat-sheet.

This cheat-sheet will help you to begin to unlock ways in which you can partner volunteers in this new normal.

Here’s to another good year partnering volunteers for impact. Thanks to all the VMPs again for all the hard and heart work.
