Volunteers are fundamental to many successful Extension programs. Research indicates that nearly one third of volunteers will choose not to continue volunteering based on poor management practices. Achieving the Extension Mission Through Volunteers is an online cohort course for the novice Extension professional working with volunteers to enhance and deliver Extension programs. This course is designed to highlight best practices in volunteer development and management and to help build staff and organizational capacity around volunteer management and development, regardless of the program area.
The 2020 dates for the training are January 27 – March 16, 2020.
Registration begins September 1. Check out what past participants and facilitators have to say about the course (5 minute Youtube video).
