Ever ask yourself "What if?" when it comes to your volunteer program? What if you stepped outside your comfort zone and took more risks and reached for the big, hairy, audacious goals that you dream about? It's time these daydreams became a reality!

Inspired by the Case Foundation's Be Fearless campaign to encourage a more fearless approach to creating lasting change, the July 2013 Nonprofit Insights webinar was about trying things that are out of our comfort zone, being fearless and dreaming big – with your volunteer engagement.

Sarah Koch, Case Foundation Director of Social Innovation shared the key values of the Case Foundation's Be Fearless campaign, which focuses on igniting a more fearless approach to changemaking. Featured panelists explored how their organizations have stepped away from traditional ways of engaging volunteers, and how this has helped them develop new approaches to tackling some of the social sector's toughest challenges.

  4. 4. 4 OUR MOMENT The world needs us to be fearless. With each day, social issues are becoming more urgent and more interconnected. Those of us charged with finding or funding solutions to social challenges seem to be moving too slowly and often operating with the same set of tools, concepts, and caution of the generations before us. If we're going to keep up with the rapid pace of change and the daunting complexities of these challenges, we must rethink traditional models. Welcome to the new social sector. Be Fearless. #vmlearn
