state of volunteering report launch + q&a

The Volunteering Victoria State of Volunteering Report is a flagship initiative of the Victorian Volunteering Strategy. The report outlines the value of volunteering to Victoria and maps out the state of volunteering before the COVID-19 pandemic and in the early stages of the pandemic.

2020 AGM: Panel Discussion + Q&A

The panel will explore the findings of the report, including the social, cultural, and economic value of volunteering and what the findings might mean for our sector going forward.

From the Top down for Volunteer Managers
Every non-profit organisation involves volunteers in some way, at the very least on its board of trustees. Yet establishing an effective volunteer engagement strategy is rarely a subject understood or focused on by senior managers. In this session we’ll help you to help your senior leadership gain a new perspective on volunteering today.
