Supporting & Engaging Volunteers with Mental Illness
1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness, which means that means many of our current and potential volunteers are living with mental health conditions. In this interactive webinar we will cover simple tools, practical strategies, and next steps to create a volunteer program that welcomes, supports and sustains volunteers with mental illness. By the end of this training, participants will be better able to recognize some common symptoms and communication strategies, identify concrete steps that any organization can take, and create their own short and achievable action plan of next steps to better support volunteers with mental illness.

Presented by Katie Mahoney, MSW
Program Manager, NAMI Seattle

Free for AL!VE Members:  $25 for General Public  (you will be billed after registering)
This professional development webinar could be used as 1.0 Professional Development Units (PDU's) for CVA Recertification.

Volunteer involvement has changed over the past 20 years, challenging leaders to adapt to a savvy New Breed of volunteers. Plenty of volunteers are willing to get involved, but they’ll become involved according to their rules--not yours.

In this hands-on ½ day workshop, Tom will describe seismic shifts that have created a new volunteer culture.

Some of these seismic shifts include the widespread emergence of technology, the episodic volunteer, twitch speed, and the development of a knowledge-based economy.

But Tom won’t leave us is a quandary. He will tell us how we can take advantage of these shifts to mobilize the power and passion of a whole New Breed of volunteers.

Tom offers fresh strategies for volunteer involvement today. You will learn the following: marketing, recruiting, motivating, leading and coaching skills.

In this webinar, we will discuss:
  • Tips to assess what training steps are good candidates for moving online
  • Considerations to keep human connections between volunteers and your organization
  • Ways to address fears coming from volunteers, staff, and yourself!
  • Options for video creation, quizzes, forms, and more
Bring your questions!

AL!VE Academy Partner Webinar: Finding the right questions to get the right answers for recruiting volunteers! Presented by VSys One
Volunteer leadership is a challenging and rewarding career field. Until you are in the role, you cannot completely comprehend what it is, and your role continually changes. Volunteer leaders are both a mystery and a phenomenon. Navigating the role and the “loose expectations” is often left up to you, the volunteer leader. You are often allowed to define your role and expected to produce proof you are succeeding. If we don’t ask the right questions, we will never get the right answers. This very brief “tour of the volunteer process” seeks to ask if you can communicate to your community the true impact your volunteers provide. This is an opportunity to look beyond the age-old questions typically asked of volunteer leaders: ï‚· How many volunteers did you have last year? ï‚· And how many hours did they serve? Volunteering is about people, the mission and impact this partnership has on a community. Volunteer leaders should be able to tell the story. Discover how you can tell your success story and be able to impact real decision-making in your organization!
