About this course

Proficiency Area: Managing.

Volunteer engagement is how we connect with, use, and energize our non-paid human resources. When we look at our organization's capacity for volunteer engagement, we are looking at a measure of the nonprofit’s ability to manage this critical resource effectively.

In the first lesson toward your bronze Merit badge, you'll explore:

  • What is volunteer engagement?

  • Why does volunteer engagement matter?

  • What does effective volunteer engagement look like?

  • How to measure impactful volunteer engagement.
