Next Tuesday, October 20th, Youthlinc will be hosting our first ever Volunteer Management Seminar! As an expert in youth volunteerism, Youthlinc wants to help other agencies learn proven strategies to increase their volunteer power! As a result of attending, the attendees will become Silver Level Parters with Youthlinc and be highly promoted to our Youthlinc Service Year students–who each have to contribute 80 hours of local service.
Why a Youthlinc Volunteer Management Seminar?
- Since our inception in 1999, we’ve mentored 2,250 students through 150,000 hours of Utah service. We’ve taught 600+ adult professionals how to mentor students.
- Our proven strategies of student leadership, hands-on service, and mentoring allow our students to create an emotional bond with those whom they serve and develop a deep-rooted service ethic, which they carry throughout a lifetime.
- Our Local Service Director has organized and led successful service initiatives with students for the past 10 years.
- Currently she oversees the 17,000 hours of meaningful service contributed by our Youthlinc Service Year students each year.
- She has also received 21 hours of volunteer management training, which she will boil down for you in this one day of training!
