Within the district there is a large trend of volunteer burn out and stresses around a community not having enough volunteers.
Lakeland District has challenged this trend by offering Volunteer Recruitment and Retention workshops throughout the district. Recently LDSCR has contracted Kimberly Quam. Kimberly is a highly regarded keynote speaker, consultant and educator within the field of volunteer administration, known for her leadership development and mentorship involvement within her community. She has combined her passions for philanthropy, culture and community in order to build sustainable partnerships and links to build sustainable partnerships and links to employment for volunteers.
- Principles of volunteer engagement (how to keep the volunteers you get!)
- New approaches to volunteer recruitment (how to find the right people)
- The Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement
If your organization/community is interested in learning more about this workshop or upcoming workshops in the district please contact your Community Development Coordinator.
