Interns - Recruiting and Onboarding

While we cannot always add an FTE to meet our growing program needs, utilizing an unpaid intern is a great way to support our projects and goals. This program will explore the benefits of a semester student intern and learn best practices, tools, and methods for recruiting, onboarding, and supervising interns. 

10:30 am-11:30 am Difficult Conversations - Advance, Don't Retreat! (Combined Session with AFHAV)

Not all volunteers are the perfect fit for your healthcare facility. How do we approach the subject and have the difficult conversations that are needed?  We take charge of the situation and proceed!  Here we will discuss a few helpful hints and approaches so you won't retreat.

Roundtable discussion of hot topics in volunteer administration including recruitment, onboarding, and recognition.

Using Fiber Art Projects to Engage Your Community

Learn how you can extend your hospital's footprint and mission in your local community by building a team of off-campus volunteers. These generous folks make beautiful gifts for your patients that will be remembered and cherished well beyond their hospital stay. Pillows, blankets, smocks for NICU babies, super hero capes for pediatric patients, etc.  Simple and low cost strategies will be shared that increase volunteer hours and community impact.
