This 4-day intensive course will expose students to the practical world of Volunteer Management within Nonprofit Organizations. The course will focus on the concept of volunteering, the antecedents of volunteering, the experience of volunteering and its consequences for both volunteers and organizations. The course will highlight trends in volunteering in an everchanging society and will mainly view the effect of these trends on Volunteer management practices. We will especially discuss how we can recruit, select, train, and retain volunteers in the 21st century. We will study different models of organizational Volunteer Management- both on an academic and on a practical level, while we understand the development of the profession of those filling this important role. The recent global Covid-19 crisis created unique circumstances for volunteer-involving nonprofits as for volunteers. These will also be discussed in the course.
