IAVE 21st World Volunteer Conference Workshop 211: From Scarcity to Abundance
Although a focus on the needs of stakeholders is a longstanding tenet of both social service and public/private management theory, it often fails to deviler the best possible outcomes for either side of the equation. However, a focus upon the assets which stakeholders and organizations posses can bring unexpected and sizable benefits to how volunteer groups perform their duties and achieve their goals. This workshop will introduce participants to asset-focused service models and their implementation, looking at how a focus on community assets can be applied over a broad spectrum of groups and demographics. Parcipants will examine the benefits on focusing on the qualities and potential of those they work with, covering how this approach can help in internal and external communications and operational strategy.
