Event Spotlight: Volunteer Think Tank
by Ryan House
Our volunteers are a huge part of what makes Ryan House so special. We love you guys! That’s why we were especially thrilled when we were selected to participate in a program through ASU’s Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation to help us learn new strategies to improve our volunteer program at the house.
One part of this opportunity was to host a volunteer think tank to gather helpful info. We asked for input from staff, clinical volunteers, and episodic volunteers and discussed topics including communication, training, and resources, and how each of these areas impacts each volunteer’s experience here at Ryan House. We had great discussion and are looking forward to using the information we gathered to continue to improve volunteer experiences and opportunities with us! If you have any ideas, we want to hear from you too. Feel free to email Erin anytime.
