FREE Volunteering 101 eCourse

Many people don’t know what their roles and responsibilities are before they start volunteering, and others don’t know the value that they bring to organisations in their critical role as a volunteer.

Knowing this information beforehand can help you become a better volunteer.

By focusing on getting the most out of your volunteer time, and thinking about how you use the skills and experience you have to offer can be of huge benefit both to you, and the organisation you are volunteering for.

So many people jump into volunteering without knowing the key information; or without considering what they can give and get in return from the experience and in some cases, this can lead to a really bad volunteering experience.

This eCourse is a great introduction and refresher to volunteering and will help make your volunteering experience one you will enjoy!

Hi, I’m Natalie Bramble I’m a community sector educator and consultant and I’ve trained over 8,700 people across Australia, helping them improve their organisations. 

Here are some comments made by not-for-profit staff and volunteers sharing why they love this eCourse

This eCourse provides volunteers with:

"A better understanding of their role, rights & responsibilities"

"A better idea of what is expected of them as part of a community group"

 

In this FREE eCourse new and existing volunteers will explore:

  • The benefits you receive as a volunteer
  • Skills; knowledge and experience you have to offer as a volunteer

  • Key things to know about an organisation before you offer to volunteer

    Volunteer Induction

    I really enjoyed the course but for a couple of technological hiccoughs.
