If you ask any leader of a non-profit or church what one of the hardest things to do is, you’ll most likely hear they have trouble keeping quality volunteers to help out.
They ask and ask but receive no response. If they do receive responses, those responses are subpar.
The end result is finding quality volunteers is hard.
But there’s actions you can take as a leader to find quality volunteers that will stick with your organization for years to come.
Have clearly defined guidelines: Skimping on guidelines for volunteers is an easy thing to do, especially when you’re struggling to bring in people to help.
This is a huge mistake. The guidelines you’ve laid out for volunteers is there for a reason. They help weed out those who will not be a good fit and clearly defines what is expected out of each volunteer.
