In August you will have received an email from myself about our work with Dorset Youth Association and the Dorset Volunteer Centre, to help environmental groups to engage more effectively with young people and to encourage young people to volunteer in environmental projects. I am writing to you now because you responded to say you were interested in being involved, and we now have the first FREE training course planned, which you may like to take part in.
This FREE training course will enable environmental groups to learn about about effective recruitment and management of volunteers, with particular emphasis on young volunteers. It takes place on Saturday 10th November at Dorset Youth Association, Lubbecke Way, Dorchester, DT1 1QL, starting at 10am and finishing at 4pm. More details below:
“Getting it right with volunteers”
Volunteer Management training day, to include 21st century recruitment, retention, and good practices when working with volunteers
Speakers to include
Karen Jones (Volunteer Centre Dorset)
Emma Brown (Dorset Youth Association)
Steve Davis (Dorset Wildlife Trust) tbc
