IAVE 21st World Volunteer Conference Workshop 528: Investing in Volunteers - Trends in Volunteering and Service that May Shape the Next Ten Years
As we reflect on the international year of the volunteer ten years later and look forward into the 21st centry, what are the trends that will have the most dramatic impact on how we conduct our work within the sector? What are some of the emerging examples of how these trends will create new and powerful opportunities for volunteer-led change? And, what are the implications for how we more effectively inspire, equip and mobilise volunteers?
In response to the changing landscape of volunteering, Amanda Everton will share, from an Australian perspective, the benefits of providing learning and development opportunities to individual volunteers through online training. Gared Jones will highlight changes in volunteering and service in the US over the last twenty years, share how American's largest volunteer management organization has reformulated itself to respond to these changes, and highlight some of the emerging trends that may shape volunteering and service over the years to come.
