2. Building relationships

To sustain a movement you need relationships, and that takes commitment. Moreover, relationships allow you to coach new volunteers until they become leaders and are recruiting new members to your cause as well. We teach how to effectively recruit volunteers, maintain deepening relationships with them to secure commitment, and give them the courage to take on increasingly important roles in supporting your work. We teach a coaching model so new members are not just supported, but learn how to reflect on their contributions and continually grow their capacity.

The Institute for Change Leaders is brought to you by the Faculty of Community Services at Ryerson University
