  • If you don’t engage in this thinking nobody in your agency will. Don’t let this be the only time you think about these things. Make time to think about volunteering and whether your philosophy fits with the way volunteering changes. Consider the issues we’ve discussed in the context of your personal and organisational philosophy and be prepared to be challenged – this is a good thing. Be clear about these beliefs, share them, discuss them and let them shape the reality of volunteering in your organisation.

  • The Philosophy of Volunteer Management Successful Volunteer Management Conference Gloucester, 24th May 2012
  • This session will be• An opportunity to think and talk about some stuff that you’ll rarely – if ever – have time to consider while you’re in the day job.• Major on the theoretical and philosophical not the practical – “There is nothing as practical as a good theory” Nancy Kline
  • The philosophy quiz• Read each item and rate your opinion• Discuss your answers and reasons for them with colleagues in small groups• How many of you: – were in complete agreement with others? – intend to move to another point of view now that you’re gotten some insight into others’ thoughts? – aren’t even sure you agree with yourself now?
  • Final thoughts• What do you believe about volunteering? – Why do you believe it?• What does your organisation believe about volunteering? – Why does it believe that? – Who in your organisation knows and understands those beliefs? – Who determines those beliefs?• How does all that impact on the success of your volunteer programme?
