Engaging Millennials in Volunteer Service

How to connect with the next generation of meaning-seekers

Millennials are the most diverse generation to enter the workforce in the United States — ever — and 98% of them have engaged in philanthropy before the age of 18 (Goldseker and Moody, 2017). The nonprofit sector must position itself to engage this unique audience of meaning-seekers. But where do we start?

Join the Johnson Center’s Kevin Peterson and Mandy Sharp Eizinger for this free workshop presented in partnership with the Michigan Community Service Commission Volunteer Generation Fund to help you:

  • Gain knowledge of demographic & sector trends
  • Understand recommended practices for recruiting & engaging millennials
  • Explore the impact of newer generations on the social sector

Price: Free
Format: Virtual
Deadline to Register:  July 29

Please Note: Due to the interactive nature of this session, it will not be recorded for later viewing.
