This course will help you enhance your skills and competencies to recruit, manage and retain volunteers in museum and cultural heritage settings.
Understand the principles and practices that frame volunteer management programs in Canada.
Provide tools and strategies to recruit, assess, place, retain and evaluate volunteers.
Enhance your understanding of the emerging trends that are impacting volunteerism and the museum and heritage community.
Note: though not required, prior experience in a cultural organization would be an asset for success in this course.
Please contact the Program Coordinator, Tusa Shea, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Credit vs non-credit
Credit refers to degree credit. If you are taking a course or program for credit through UVic Continuing Studies, it means that course or program provides credit towards a degree at UVic or another authorized university. Credit students have to meet certain criteria, such as being accepted to both UVic Continuing Studies and the University of Victoria.
