Volunteer Program Assessment and Evaluation: Volunteer Management Training series
Due to increasing pressure for accountability in volunteer programs, expectations have been mounting to demonstrate the value of those programs. “Doing nice things” simply is not enough in today’s world of diminishing resources. Donors, board members and the communities we serve all want to be able to tell the story of the work we do, and utilizing the data you collect can be the perfect conduit to do just that.
Through this module, participants will be able to discuss the purpose and value of carrying out volunteer program evaluation, identify key steps and questions to be answered before designing an evaluation or assessment, and identify key stakeholders who must be engaged in the creation and approval of the evaluation and assessment process.
The Volunteer Management Training series is designed to provide individuals and organizations with resources and skills necessary to effectively manage, develop and retain volunteers. Participants will leave each module with key takeaways to implement in their own organizations and volunteer programs.
The series is open to CU Boulder students, staff and faculty as well as non-profit organizations.
This training series has been developed by the Volunteer Resource Center, which was founded at the University of Colorado Boulder in 1965. Training content was adapted from Betty Stalling’s Training Busy Staff to Succeed with Volunteers: The 55-Minute Training Series.
