They say that many hands make light work, and nowhere is that more true than in Scouts, but how do we get more people on board?
Our face-to-face volunteer recruitment workshop is here to teach your teams the ins and outs of finding and keeping new volunteers. During the session, the engaging activities will get conversations flowing and provide participants with ideas they can take back to their Groups and Districts to boost volunteer numbers.
We will cover:
- The Recruitment Cycle
- Overcoming barriers
- Preparing for recruitment
- Getting people through the door
- Finding new volunteers their place
- Welcoming and supporting new volunteers
- Ongoing recruitment
Request our face-to-face workshop for your District or County and bring your teams together in one room, so we can all provide more quality Scouts sessions to our communities.
