FREE WEBINAR: The Great Divide: Bridging intergenerational gaps to fully engage your volunteers


Need to do a better job with volunteer succession planning? Do you struggle with bridging the gap between different generations of volunteers? Our free webinar will give you new strategies to help create a more engaging volunteer program for all ages.


This workshop will consider how to successfully implement volunteer succession planning by bridging the gap between millennial and boomer volunteers. By investigating and implementing innovative methods of engagement, your organization can facilitate the transfer of knowledge and experience between the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow. We'll explore how to do this by creating desirable, value-added experiences to develop strong volunteer-centred engagement programs that are aligned with the Canadian Code of Volunteer standards (CCVI) best practices. In this webinar, we will also discuss ways to engage the growing population of millennial (and younger!) volunteers such as micro-volunteer opportunities, ambassador programs, and leaders of tomorrow programs, and learn how to connect these successes to the development of a fully engaged volunteer program.

What's a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program - and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!

"I thought this webinar was fantastic. The presenter was so knowledgeable and did a great job of sharing a lot of information in an engaging way. I learned a lot about things I could do to strengthen my current volunteer program, however what I also gained from this webinar (surprisingly) was empowerment and confidence in the fact that a lot of the things I am currently doing are on the right track. Thanks again for putting this on!"
