Free workshops to improve the skills of community groups
The Strathbogie Shire Council is running a series of free online workshops to help community groups develop their skills.
The community capacity building workshops will be held online and will cover two topics in four workshops.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Laura Binks said the first workshop, Valuing our volunteers, provided a simple framework for best practice volunteer management and support.
“We want to support community groups, so that their volunteers have a great experience working with them and get the most out of their volunteers,” said Cr Binks.
“The session will cover how to recruit the best people to do the best work for your organization, the essentials to help your volunteers be their best, and the best people management for working with volunteers.”
Cr Binks said the second topic, Fundraising 101, would focus on a simple, step-by-step approach to strategic fundraising for organizations.
“This session covers how to assess your needs and the best fundraising approaches, how to develop an effective fundraising plan to help you move forward, and where to go if you need additional help finding funding. “, she said.
There will be a day and evening session for both subjects at the end of this month:
