Most parks work with volunteers. Some parks treat volunteers like stars. When this happens, word spreads in the volunteer community.
But not all parks do well working with volunteers.
This episode of The Park Leaders Episode, we have the opportunity to hear words directly from a volunteer. This volunteer offers tips and advice on how to get the most working with volunteers. How often do we take time to listen to what volunteers have to say?
Today, we are going to listen to volunteers and consider how we can do better.
If there are some key things a volunteer would love for you to know:
- If you have a volunteer program, make sure you value them.
- Get the input from the volunteers.
- Your Volunteer Coordinator shouldn’t be the only person who cares about volunteers.
- Train your volunteers just like you train your staff.
