This Training Design by Rick Lynch presents basic points about how to design an effective training session for volunteers. Co-author of the best-selling book, Volunteer Management, Lynch describes three distinct training arenas or “domains”  – training to increase volunteer knowledge, training to improve volunteer skills and training to affect volunteer attitudes. He then guides the reader to understand what works best in each.  Lynch’s suggestions for how to design a multi-hour training program provide both insights and valuable suggestions for anyone who has ever been involved in training volunteers.
