Knowledge swap: The art and science of working with volunteers

As organizations doing community food work, the volunteers that come our way are wide-ranging — from corporate groups wanting to do good for a day, to well-intentioned middle class people wanting to contribute, to those who experience marginalization and may double as program participants. While there is room for everyone to lend a hand, an organization will do well by having clear guidelines, orientation processes, and staff trained to manage this diverse audience. Bring your insight, tools, and quandaries to this participatory session where we’ll explore how to bring in great volunteers, get them on board with your mission, and improve their skills / confidence (if that’s what they're after), all while ensuring they are contributing in helpful and tangible ways.
