As the new editor of the Training Designs section, Sue Jones shares her perspective on the importance of training in volunteer management. In her first column for e-Volunteerism, she notes that training is not the same as learning, and that leaders of volunteers need to recognize all the opportunities to increase the skills and understanding of every volunteer. In fact, she makes the case that concern for learning is vital to each stage of a volunteer’s experience, from newcomer to veteran. After reading this Training Design, we predict you’ll look at training from a whole new viewpoint and become more intentional in daily training activities.
