O.9.1 Volunteer Structure and Engagement


Establish an ongoing volunteer program.


Volunteers are often the life blood of an organization.  Without them, it is very difficult to accomplish strategic goals, carry out work plans and manage successful events. In many cases, volunteers represent the face of the organization.  Therefore, the recruiting and onboarding process is significant and needs to be thoroughly managed.


Look to recruit volunteers whose interests and affinity aligns with the organization.  A good volunteer program should clearly outline needed tasks, responsibilities, and action items.  In addition, it is important to have a thorough onboarding process to ensure a checks and balances for volunteer tasks, organizational goals, and chain of command.
