PRESENTATION: Volunteer Recruitment: How to Go from Passive to Proactive Without Burning Out!
Over the last three years, CASA of Los Angeles has increased their volunteer program from 490 to 765 committed long-term volunteers under the leadership of Camrin Christensen. Learn how they were successful in building a recruitment and outreach plan that was not only successful at bringing in volunteers but impactful towards the overall growth of the organization. Camrin will lead us in a discussion around being proactive and intentional, the importance of collaborating with volunteers and colleagues, and what challenges she experienced along the way. Attendees can expect to walk away from this training with tools and ideas to put education to action! Do not miss this!
About Our Presenter: Camrin Christensen joined CASA of Los Angeles as Volunteer Recruitment and Outreach Director in January 2015. She is heading up the organization’s efforts to increase the number of volunteers serving as Court Appointed Special Advocates for children in the foster care system. Part of this role includes developing partnerships with corporations and community groups, in order to increase awareness of the opportunity to become a volunteer advocate for one of the 30,000 children in the dependency system in LA County. She looks forward to sharing information about the work of the organization and the role of the volunteer advocates in the lives of the foster children they work with.
