Community Tool Box: Volunteers
This brochure examines the value of volunteers for creating and maintaining community projects. A wide range of expertise can be found among community members, which can be enhanced with diversity among culture and age of the community volunteers as well. Recruiting volunteers starts with creating a list of partner organizations' memberships and volunteers as well as other mutual volunteer sources. Then, recruiting can be achieved through broad efforts with announcements and sigh-up sheets. Training volunteers in the philosophy, objectives, and goals of the project is the next step in creating a successful volunteer base. The brochure goes on to explain making the most of meaningful jobs and volunteer coordination.
