Masterclass: 21st Century Volunteers

In this first in our series of masterclasses for 2016, I’m In, Kirklees and Volunteering Kirklees are inviting you to hear national expert Rob Jackson talk about how we work with volunteers in a modern context – volunteering today is not the same as it was twenty years ago.

This session will look at some of the key ways in which society is changing and how these changes affect volunteerism. However, just exploring these changes isn’t enough, we will also discuss what leaders of volunteers can do to update their practices to accommodate these changes, further enhancing their engagement and retention of 21st century volunteers.

If you would like to come along, please sign up via Eventbrite. Please note that this is a FREE event:
