Webinar: It's Ok to Turn Them Away - How to Say No to a Volunteer

May 27, 2020
12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

We spend all our days saying 'we need more volunteers'. So how can we tell a volunteer it's time to leave? How can we say no to a person wanting to help? We can, and we must, if they aren't the right fit. In this webinar, learn to use volunteer screening best practices and performance management to screen out or let go of volunteers. Learn techniques to deliver a professional message that still preserves the relationship.
