    There are many different types of volunteer engagement. One style that is becoming more and more popular is engaging volunteers in event-based or project-based opportunities. This type of engagement typically has a short and well-defined commitment. Many traditional volunteer engagement tactics may be abbreviated or adjusted due to time constraints, resources, or availability. Join us to learn more about this tactic and how to successfully leverage it.
