Webinar - Mentoring Volunteer Firefighters and Leaders: Why You Should Care

Recruiting and retaining volunteers in your department is an important and exciting part of your job as a leader. Understanding why volunteers decide to stay at your department requires individualized relationships and conversations with each person. Mentorship offers a significant return on investment for both the department and the volunteer, and it asks leaders to consider the needs of others on a deeper level. This webinar, presented by NVFC Director (MA) Joe Maruca, will focus on how department leaders can utilize mentorship as a volunteer firefighter recruitment and retention tool.
