It's the little things that make people feel appreciated, especially when they are giving freely of their time and energy.
It's often the same people volunteering for the soccer club, the hockey club, the church bazaar and the community fun day. It’s great to see such commitment and dedication, but along with their involvement there is a great danger – volunteer burnout!
Is your group trying to look forward and evolve but having trouble knowing where to start? Been working on a project for so long, you’ve lost track of whether things are going as planned? Use evaluation as a starting point, a check-in or a final step.
People make decisions on a daily basis. Often these decisions have a small impact on their daily routine; in other cases, they have a huge impact on many people.
Does your organization have difficulty recruiting new volunteers? It may be more than a lack of willing volunteers. It may be time to take a closer look at how your organization works.
The kind of experience a new member has with your group is more important than you might realize. If people don’t feel welcome or needed, their interest and enthusiasm will disappear and your group has just lost a valuable resource!
Personalizing your volunteer recognition component of your program is the best form of showing appreciation for the contribution of volunteers
