Equipping Volunteers to Understand Differences

As many youth serving programs start a new program year, there is often a scheduled kick-off meeting with volunteers to discuss upcoming events and activities. These meetings are also a great opportunity to incorporate training for volunteers. Activities that discuss individual and cultural differences can help volunteers collaborate effectively and reach more diverse audiences. In this webinar, we will address why building cultural competency in volunteers is important, what contexts that might happen in, and some tools/activities for getting the conversation started.

Join the Michigan State University Extension, Capacity Building Workgroup, for this interactive webinar on September 23, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at
