Join us for Planning Your Member Calendar Around the Member Lifecycle, a virtual workshop for AmeriCorps members on May23rd, brought to you by Do Good, Be Good and sponsored by America Learns.

Every AmeriCorps member has a unique experience, but there are patterns that show up consistently as members move from the Honeymoon phase to Facing Reality to Overcoming then finally to Accomplishment and Exit Fever. By strategically aligning your trainings and member engagement activities around this lifecycle, you can anticipate the challenges members will face and proactively intervene just in time. A well planned calendar can go a long way to member retention and we’ll help you design it in this session.

Learn the member lifecycle; Understand what members need at different stages of the life cycle; Gain a deeper understanding of the types of activities that you could include throughout the term to meet member needs.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  1. What is the member lifecycle
  2. What do members need at different stages of the lifecycle
  3. What types of activities can you include throughout the term to meet their needs
