The DTB-Certification „Pluspunkt Ehrenamt“ Herbert Hartmann, DTB

Structure of the presentation:

• Introductory note: integrating the progam into the DTB strategic planning concepts. • Why did we decide to create such a program? • Structure and content of the program. • Implementation • Numbers and Experiences

Why did we decide to create the program „Pluspunkt Ehrenamt.DTB?“

• It was a reaction on demand of the grassroots of our gym-clubs! • Studies varify a big lack of volunteers, particularly in leading positions! • New and higher demands on volunteering prevent often from engagement! • Better preparation and education has to be offered!

•The lack of volunteers is the biggest problem for sport-club management in Germany!

•Volunteering in organised sport is is decreasing! •Particularly volunteering in leading positions!

The demands on voluntary work have expanded and increased and are constantly changing: •more time exhausting; regulations have become more complex and differentiated; •more sport activities need to be implemented; increasing financial challenges; higher quality demands from customers (commercial concurrence); •club philosophy changes from on conviction community to a service provider; •more strategic, political functions.

After four workshops you get a certificate like a diploma. • you are member of the community PPE • you get special information via newsletter; • you get special offers as VIP.

Implemetation - We tested the content and the methods of the workshops in 2009 and 2010; - We briefed the moderators in 2010 - We produced for each modul a manual for organisers and moderators including organisational guidelines, a detailed program for the workshop, background information and literature on the topic, learning aids; - We decided on the concept in our highest body 2010; - We promoted the workshops through our communication tools, edited a promotion flyer, presented the program on the Annual Meeting for leaders of the regional associations. 15

Data, numbers and experiences: - 20 people got the certificate „Pluspunkt Ehrenamt.DTB“ in 2011 - We reached only volunteers, who have already a function/position. They had been enthusiastic about the workshops and motivated to change things. - We didn't yet reach newcomers. A good strategy to recruit new volunteers for this program is still not existing! - In the pilot phase (2011) DTB paid the costs for the moderators (ca. 1000 € per module). - We expected the country and/or regional associations will take over the program in their own responsibility. 16

-The acceptance of the program through the country and regional associations is not satisfying; only 3 had been realy active. - Financing seem to be one of the main reasons for the lack of interest. - But I suppose, a lack of awareness of the challenge and low willingess to act, seem to be more popular.

The dilemma: A good governance program! But a lack of interest to take it! What can we do to overcome?
