Being prepared is so important; it's the motto of the Boy Scouts. It states "The Scout motto means that you are always ready to do what is necessary to help others. It also means you are ready, willing, and able to do what is necessary in any situation that comes along." You could say this is the motto of all who supervise volunteers; directors, managers, coordinators or any other title given the responsibility of supervising volunteers or it should be.View Post
Building a relationship with a new volunteer is a lot like a blind date. In the interview, you're on a date. At the beginning, you don't really know anything about each other. As you begin talking, you ask questions and share. This conversation is for exploring and learning about each other; what is each looking for, what are their expectations, what do they have to offer and most importantly is there potential for a rewarding experience for both. It's important that this conversation, just like a date, be one of integrity; genuine, open and honest to begin building trust. At the end of the meeting, you declare the next step.View Post
