A Community First Yorkshire event

Volunteer Co-ordinator Network Meeting

Event aims

Would you like to encourage more young people aged 14 – 25 to volunteer with your organisation? Why not join us as we explore some of the practical considerations and benefits of involving young volunteers.

Who should attend?

This is a network meeting for volunteer co-ordinators from across North Yorkshire to come together to share information, advice, tips and thoughts on all aspects of volunteer management.

What will you learn?

In this session we will explore good practice when involving young volunteers. We will look at creating an age appropriate environment, and will hear about the impact and benefits of involving young people from the viewpoint of an organisation, community, employer and young person.

There will also be an opportunity to explore the topics further with other volunteer coordinators and to raise any issues or concerns you may have about any aspect of volunteer management.

If you have any specific questions you would like to put to the network, please submit these before the meeting.

What’s included

All attendees will receive a copy of the presentations and notes from the session.
