Episode 301 - Welcome to Season 3!
Tobi Johnson, President & Founder of VolunteerPro, and Jennifer Bennett, Director , Education & Training at VolunteerMatch talk about the Season 3 themes and their thoughts on how leaders of volunteers are continuing to adapt and evolve to engaging volunteers during the ongoing pandemic.
Season 3 of the Time + Talent Podcast is finally here! Tobi and Jennifer are back to share exciting and inspirational stories from practitioners in the field of volunteer management. We didn’t think we’d still be talking about COVID and a global pandemic in 2022, but we are, and this season highlights the organizations that are not just surviving, but thriving as they learn to engage volunteers in this new environment. We don’t like to say pandemic silver linings - but we are excited to share stories from leaders of volunteers that used the pandemic as an opportunity to get creative, dig deeper into their organization’s mission, and tap into the time and talent of all kinds of volunteers - including the National Guard! This season wouldn’t have been possible without our guests sharing their time and talent and we want to thank each and every one of them for joining us on this journey.
We hope you enjoy Season 3 - please take a moment to subscribe, rate, and review. And if you, or someone you know, has an inspirational story about volunteer engagement we want to hear about it! Submit your story on the Be a Guest page on or website -https://www.timeandtalentpod.com/ - and we may feature you in Season 4.
