Volunteer Management

Volunteer Management

The Bohse Team can help you assess your current volunteer program, or help you create a recruitment and retention program to find the professional volunteers your organization needs to be effective. We look at how you run your program, review recruitment and training materials, orientation packets and evaluations, and make recommendations for improvement. If you are lacking the necessary tools for a successful program, The Bohse Team will provide services to help you create these tools and processes. The Bohse Team can also work with advisory councils, and can facilitate for better cooperation and communication between volunteer groups and staff members.

How to Plan and Run a Great Volunteer Program

Volunteering is, and will continue to be, a necessary way of enhancing, expanding, and enriching services for those in need. Management and staff of non-profit and government programs recognize the value of volunteers, but they also acknowledge limitations and constraints in operating successful volunteer programs.


Our workshop covers a wide range of issues that volunteer programs must address in order to be successful.  They can be presented as a half-day or full-day and includes these topics:


  • How to Operate a Volunteer Program
  • Keys to Recruiting Successful Volunteers
  • Orientation & Placement of Volunteers
  • Management of the Volunteer Program
  • Budgeting for the Success of Your Volunteer Program
  • Training Volunteers
  • Rewarding & Recognizing Your Volunteers
  • Evaluation Processes for Volunteers and Volunteer Programs
  • Retiring a Volunteer


Please note that our workshops can be customized to emphasize your areas of concern. Just click here to contact Bohse  for more information.
