Volunteer Training Group (LDP)
Purpose & Objectives
Our primary aim is to provide volunteers with an overview of the DOP and to offer basic training on what it is to volunteer. We also develop the DOP’s volunteer leaders and help fill the leadership pipeline to the Executive, working groups, and strategy groups.
Membership is open to any DOP member, including alumni of the Leadership Development Programme.
The most high-profile activity is the Leadership Development Programme (LDP), which started in 2012.
Six to ten delegates participate annually.
The year-long programme consists of three residential modules around the country, individual and group projects, mentoring, and monthly ‘e-calls.’
Moving forward, the VTG will be supporting volunteers in general, including face-to-face and teleconference introductions to working with the DOP and volunteering skills.
We welcome interest from those who wish to sit on our LDP Executive Board, to manage various aspects of the programme (e.g., delegate selection, venue administration, and content development).
