Without volunteers, many of our organizations would accomplish far less good in our community. They are a crucial resource that bring benefits and challenges. Volunteer resources, just like financial resources, must be cultivated, stewarded, and deployed with intention and care.

We will discuss:

  • Educating volunteers to your mission and organizational culture
  • How to match volunteers to opportunities
  • Volunteer job descriptions to create clear expectations and boundaries for the volunteer, client, and staff
  • Collecting and filing volunteer information like contact info, background clearances, and more
  • Supporting volunteers in their work

Not all volunteers will be a good fit for your organization, and not every offer of help will be beneficial for your mission. Creating volunteer situations with positive interactions and outcomes will keep your volunteers energized and focused on moving your organizational goals forward.
