eBook: The New Volunteer Manager
If you are a new volunteer manager, you probably have a lot of questions — How do you connect with volunteers who share the same passion for your cause? And, how do you work in partnership with them to bring about change for the common good?
These questions may be simple, but designing a smart volunteer program takes a little savvy.
That’s why I wrote this e-book, “The New Volunteer Manager: The First 90 Days.” I hope you’ll find it helpful.
There is no doubt that a volunteer manager’s job is a tough one, especially when you’re just starting out. For many, the title “Volunteer Coordinator” has been tacked on to a growing list of job responsibilities. It can feel a bit disconcerting.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed don’t worry. You are not alone. Most volunteer managers get little by way of training and guidance, and they simply don’t know where to start. How do I recruit my very first volunteer? Will people really care about our work? Will they really have the time to help? All good questions.
