Finding and Engaging Volunteers Booster

Powerful campaigns that win progressive change harness people power. And doing that isn't easy. Recruiting volunteers and keeping them coming back is challenging work. Work that requires intentionality and engagement!

If you come to Finding and Engaging Volunteers on July 18 (6pm-8:30pm) you'll get support and skills you need to grow your campaign or organization's people power. We'll hear your challenges, learn new ways to understand volunteer recruitment and retention, and practice skills in a fun and supportive environment.

We welcome all experience levels, and find that folks get the most out of our workshops when they come as a team of 2 or more people. So please invite your teammates, colleagues and friends!

Anna Barford (Organizer with Dogwood, My Sea to Sky, and Georgia Straight Alliance) and Laura Cuthbert (Co-Director at Organize BC) will facilitate!

We'll have some light snacks, if you can bring some potluck snacks to share we would really appreciate it! It creates a nice community vibe and is tasty.
