If mastery, autonomy and purpose are keys to motivation, there is no better way to motivate volunteers than through leadership programs that allow volunteers to experience all three. But, how can you inspire volunteers to lead and support them when you have no time and little money?
volunteers seem like a great match and they show a lot of enthusiasm about joining. But, even though you’ve got them to “yes!”, getting them to show up for training or their volunteer shift, it’s like pulling teeth. Can anything be done, or are folks just not able to commit any more?
Volunteers need a GPS (global positioning system) to help guide them through the orientation process and get familiar with your new environment. You can create a Volunteer Handbook that can act as your program’s personal GPS.
