Volunteer Recognition: Volunteer Management Training series

Recognition is an integral part of volunteer management that involves the acknowledgment of contributions made by volunteers. Powerful and meaningful recognition begins when we acknowledge the talents and desires of prospective volunteers and offer opportunities which respond to the motivational needs they are looking to fulfill through volunteering.

Through this module, participants will be able to identify barriers to giving volunteer recognition at their organization, explore the spectrum of ways volunteers can be appreciated, and describe the essential guidelines for effective recognition.

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.
