Working With Volunteers: Three Areas for Attention

Working with VolunteersWhat are the basic areas where you’ll need to put attention in working with volunteers in an Ethical Society?

How do you recruit and engage volunteers, serving both effectiveness of task completion, and learning and success of the volunteer?

How do you support volunteers so that they can succeed and so that the tasks can be done effectively, serving the Society?

How do you evaluate — not the person — but the task accomplishments and the match of volunteer to task?

The attached is a PowerPoint show that walks through the basic concepts of working with volunteers.  You can control the show with your mouse click or arrow keys, to move forward and back through.  Also attached, though less interactive, is a PDF document with the images, and another to be used as a handout in a retreat so that participants can take notes.
