Volunteers are NOT Free! Building a Volunteer Program That Flourishes

New York, NY
April 20, 2010

Presented in collaboration with the Arts & Business Council of New York.

Since April of last year, a combination of factors — the Serve America Act, The NYC Service initiative, and the economy — have yielded a significant increase in the number of nonprofit volunteers. What elements go into a charity's decision to accept a volunteer, train that volunteer, and choose the right assignment for that volunteer? The panel discusses some of the ingredients of a successful volunteer program.
