Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers in Rural Communities.

Across our network we’ve heard from organizations and communities – especially in rural parts of our states – that they rely on volunteers to carry out their missions. But finding, engaging, and keeping volunteers can be a significant challenge. This webinar explores how communities in rural areas are successfully recruiting volunteers and the strategies they use to keep them engaged for the long-haul!  Gain inspiration and hear lessons learned, and practical strategies you can use!
