Engaging Volunteer Leaders

By June 7, 2021June 24th, 2021Newsletter

Sterling Volunteers has just released an insightful eToolkit on Engaging Volunteer Leaders. This eToolkit articulates the benefits of engaging volunteer leaders and assessing needs and traits to help identify new potential leader positions.

Effectively empowering volunteers as leaders may require overcoming resistance from colleagues, more thoughtful work planning, garnering sufficient resources to train and support the volunteer leaders, honing delegation skills, and investing in their leadership development.

This guide features tools that are important to add to any volunteer engagement professional’s tool belt. They are designed to enhance—not replace—existing volunteer engagement practices. In particular, use these tools when seeking to tap the potential of volunteer leaders.

Download this eToolkit for case studies and strategies for success, along with helpful tools to:

  • Advocate for volunteer leaders by reducing barriers
  • Identify needs and plan the work
  • Delegate the work and support volunteer leaders to success
  • Develop current and future leaders.

A special thanks to Sterling Volunteers’ guest author Beth Steinhorn, President of VQ Volunteer Strategies.
