Key principles to engage your Volunteers in your organization.

  • Make sure that the volunteering has a clear purpose and is well supported.
  • Make sure volunteers know what is expected of them.
  • Organize a welcoming orientation for all new volunteers and keep them updated on changes that affect them. 
  • Make sure suitable facilities and procedures are in place for volunteers to work and learn effectively.
  • Make sure that the project team has enough time to coordinate volunteers, while also keeping on top of other duties.
