Bonus June AL!VE Academy: 9 Years and Counting: Lessons Learned from a Virtual Volunteer Program

Bonus June AL!VE Academy: 9 Years and Counting: Lessons Learned from a Virtual Volunteer Program  June 4, 3 PM Eastern

Nearly 10 years ago, a national nonprofit hired its first Volunteer Coordinator and presented the employee with an intriguing challenge: create a national volunteer program that will fit into the organization's existing virtual service delivery model. This presentation will share the lessons learned from creating a virtual volunteer program while answering your questions along the way. We will discuss how to create and develop relationships, best practices of volunteer management, and how virtual volunteer opportunities can help you reach a completely new volunteer pool.

Presented by Michele Wiesner, CVA

In this role, Michele is responsible for the growth, direction and results of service delivery support programs, including the Volunteer Program, Alumni Program and Referral & Training Partners Program. These support programs serve to increase organizational reach, influence, effectiveness and efficiency through partnerships and supporters. The organization has over 1,400 volunteers and 80 training and referral partners united by the goal of helping veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. Michele joined the organization in 2012 as the first Volunteer Coordinator and was tasked with creating a national and fully remote volunteer program. Michele holds a Master of Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Georgia, as well as the Certification in Volunteer Administration (CVA). As a volunteer, Michele serves as the current president for the Georgia Association for Volunteer Administration (GAVA) and enjoys giving back to the profession of volunteer management.
