Future Projection Snapshot of expansion – Boatshed/SVI Clubs/Yacht Clubs Amount of Increased participation Delivery of Product Volunteers – Manage demand
Volunteer Strategy CURRENT LANDSCAPE: No-Formal united strategy amongst clubs Engaging enough staff to cope with demand Understanding the type of volunteer involved Limited Links with organisations/community partners GENERAL RESULTS: Very high levels of Support for Volunteering Confusion as to how to get involved Reluctance to be ‘locked in’ to volunteering Need to tailor messages to different life stages and attitudinal segments Compliance requirements are increasing and becoming more complex Difficulty in attracting and engaging younger people with more ‘self interest’ attitudes Lack of capacity (funding & time) to recruit, engage, manage, and support volunteers An Improved volunteer model (recruiting and retaining) to ensure a sustainable product, increasing the personnel to manage the growth in demand and product-vision.
Forward Direction: The two broad categories of audience for the strategy are: Individuals looking to volunteer and those that have never volunteered before but are open to the idea Organisations that will provide opportunities for people to participate in volunteering Target Audience: Partnership with education industry creating sustained involvement, inclusion in curriculum for valued return Sustained volunteer concept Linking partners with delivery of product within the community Clear links/partnerships with commercial organisations (Employee Volunteer Programs) Utilizing Apparent Partnerships Yacht Clubs Community groups/organisations Disability Organisations AAA providers Volunteering Networks Communicate clear, accurate & attractive program Wider Audience
Key Elements Recruitment: Increasing the level of volunteer participation in Sailability Retention: Sustainable volunteering levels by providing an enjoyable and rewarding environment Recognition: Volunteers are the backbone of Sailability, recognition for the contribution they make to the program Resourced: Ensure that volunteers in Sailability are sufficiently trained and resourced to maximize their contribution to the program and its development
Social-Inclusion-YV members AIM of Disability Education Module: Creating opportunities nationally through networks in education, classification and training. Encouraging active participation in sailing, regardless of race gender, disability, religion, age or socio-economic background. Encouraging sailing as a sport that can be enjoyed at a variety of levels by participants of all ages, regardless of ability. Need for change: Modules not operational Not included in YV accredited qualifications Directional Objective: Include DEP in all accredited courses Three specific Sailing Modules: Inclusive Coaching (Coaches & Instructors) Opening Doors (Clubs) Including sailors with a disability in racing (Race officials)
Social-Inclusion-YV members TIMELINE: AUGUST:Administration/Setup of Module SEPTEMBER-OCT:2 Pilot courses delivered, Assistance from VIS Boatshed & Mornington NOVEMBER-DEC:Incorporate Modules into accredited YV courses. Train & educate presenters Sustained attachment to YV courses End Result: Targeting all connected to yachting within the state, creating awareness of Sailability’s aims, objectives and pathway, whilst educating inclusion for all regardless of ability.
