During this participative workshop we will explore some of the barriers to involving volunteers from a minority ethnic background.
We will look at the challenges and the benefits of an inclusive approach and offer practical advice on recruiting and supporting volunteers from this cohort.
We will also have an "Ask the Expert" session giving you the chance to look at ways in which you can make real changes, or overcome challenges within your organisation using the experience of others.
This course is aimed at anyone with responsibility for recruiting or managing volunteers.
By the end of this course you will:
- Have a better understanding of some of the different barriers which can prevent someone from a minority ethnic background from volunteering with your organisation.
- Have a better understanding of how to reach people from a minority ethnic background in the Harrogate District.
- Understand how you can adjust or tailor your volunteer recruitment and management practices to overcome these barriers.You will leave with some practical solutions which you can implement immediately on your return to work.
