How to find the right volunteers?
Looking for volunteers via Social Held? Here are some tips from us!
- Make your profile more visible! Add your logo & short, but catchy description about your organization
- Provide clear requirements for each volunteering opportunity . This way you make sure that volunteers know what to expect!
- Be clear about the time commitment that is needed – honesty & communication is key
- Don’t forget to mention what you offer in return! Training? Insurance? Community? Get-togethers? You might be surprised how much a difference it makes to volunteers
- Once volunteers sign up for your opportunity, get in touch with them quickly
- Don’t forget to show your appreciation, thank you notes or emails are always welcome…
