Capacity Building Workshop: Managing Volunteers at Festivals & Events, Wednesday, May 24
Wednesday, May 24, 6pm
Telus International Ireland, Emmet St, Ballina
Following an incredible month of volunteer engagement throughout April, Ballina 2023 presents our next training session in partnership with Volunteer Ireland – Capacity Building Workshop:
‘Managing Volunteers at Festivals and Events’
With Stuart Garland, Learning and Capacity Building Manager at Volunteer Ireland
Volunteers play a key role in making events a success. They can fulfil a range of roles such as managing your social media, welcoming your guests, finding sponsors or capturing video footage of your event allowing you to promote the work you do. The event is designed for community groups and organisations that work with volunteers to deliver events and festivals and who would like to develop the skills and knowledge to effectively recruit, manage and make the most of event volunteering!
Stuart will share his own experience of managing event volunteers – from small events to national festivals, share volunteer engagement ideas that will help ensure your volunteers have a good experience and will explore the event volunteering lifecycle.
This event forms part of Ballina 2023’s RISE: Legacy Programme.
With thanks to Volunteer Ireland, Mayo Volunteer Centre and Telus International Ireland for their support.
