Unlocking the potential of Corporate Volunteering
June 25 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Corporate Volunteering is a critical platform to tap into the rapidly growing demand and trend amongst companies for corporate volunteering. Furthermore, corporate volunteering is proving to be an invaluable prospect pipeline for corporate partnerships.
This course will provide guidelines on how to set up a corporate volunteering program, from product design and planning, budget and revenue forecasting, resource needs, system & management, launch and marketing and operational steps. In addition to tips & tricks, the participants will be trained on processes and tools to help them better plan, setup and run their own corporate volunteering program.
The course will be practical and provide multiple best practice examples and live case studies, drawing on some of the best programs currently in operation in Australia.
The session will also include time for group work, brainstorm and planning to enable the participants to leave the session with guidance on their next steps.
Please note minimum numbers are required for this workshop to run.
