The challenges facing rural volunteer programs are being exasperated due to the everchanging societal landscape during the pandemic. Based off MAVA’s recent survey of Greater Minnesota, we will do a deep dive into these issues and plan a path forward.

You will leave this session with tools and resources to begin tackling inequalities you see in your organization, such as the need to recruit a younger volunteer base and how to adjust roles to address transportation or internet issues in our communities.

Join MAVA for the first event in our 2021 series called "Do Better Together" where we will facilitate conversations around important topics on racial equity in volunteerism.

This free webinar will allow volunteer engagement leaders to learn more about the refugee experience in Minnesota. A representative from The International Institute of Minnesota will offer a Refugee 101 presentation, which will describe the experiences of Minnesota’s refugee population, including their journey before and after arriving to the US, their geographic origins, and the impacts of US federal policy. Additionally, we will discuss the contributions made refugee population throughout Minnesota, and how our community can help serve the new refugee population.

MAVA will follow up the presentation with small-group discussions about the Minnesota refugee experience and how nonprofit organizations and volunteer engagement leaders can engage with and support refugees in our communities.

Volunteers 65+ have been the backbone of organizational volunteer efforts. Historically, organizations have relied on volunteers 65+ to achieve their organizational goals. The Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration recently conducted a research study and published a guidebook on Tapping into the Strengths of Older Volunteers. Participants in this workshop will receive a copy of the guidebook and will learn tips and tools about how volunteers 65+ can be best recruited, engaged and retained as volunteers. The workshop will also cover misconceptions about older volunteers, fostering an inclusive environment for older adult volunteers and methods for adapting during the COVID-19 pandemic. This highly interactive and engaging workshop will provide new insights about the volunteer workforce and will offer strategies for adapting during the pandemic.
