Finding and Keeping Volunteers

How do we meet people that care about our issues? How do we bring them in? How do we keep them involved for the long run, for campaigns that may take months or years?

We'll explore these questions through presentation, discussion, and role play. We plan to keep it real and interactive, so bring your own stories, examples, challenges, and innovations. Volunteers, organizers, and leaders at any level in an organization are heartily welcome!

Join Mary Leighton and Anna Barford, both organizers from Dogwood, for a lively evening workshop!



South Vancouver Neighbourhood House is on Victoria facing West between 48th and 49th Avenue. Our reserved room is on the first floor, on your left as you enter.
