Recruiting your volunteer dream team is a process. This workbook is designed to help you improve your organization’s process so you can recruit the best possible volunteer team for your organization, whether it be for an event or a long-term program.
First, take a good, hard look at your current recruitment strategy. The idea is to improve your process as you go through this workbook.
Don’t hesitate to ask your current volunteers questions as you fill out the workbook. Real feedback will help identify what you’re doing well, as well as the areas that will benefit from an update. Focus on the low-hanging fruits first; the areas that you can quickly fix.
After you complete a recruitment campaign, be sure to come back and evaluate what went well and what could improve. Then, go through the workbook again to continue to tweak your process.
