What Workshop Attendees Are Saying

"The workshop was full of very helpful information. We were given many great tips and tools to successfully run programs and help our department run as smoothly as possible. The speaker was very energetic and motivating which made the workshop fun and entertaining."                   -Megan

As a new Volunteer Coordinator, I found the information in the workshop provided extremely beneficial and useful in my day to day work. I will definitely attend another workshop put on by Volunteer Central in the future."     -Brittany 

The real life applications of the workshop content was very useful and contained information that I am using in my daily work routines. Not only did the workshop provide strategies for achieving the required objective but also provided unique ways to further engage with my volunteers. In addition to all the information and strategies that were shared it was also a wonderful forum for networking with other members in the field, this offered a great opportunity to share challenges, ideas and successes.”     -Jody
