Last week I suggested the idea of your volunteer base becoming a club. You can read the idea on this volunteer management blog post.
I work for a Therapeutic Riding Center in Colorado, USA. Some of my volunteers took it upon themselves to create a club of sorts. They realized that they were missing out on relationships with more people because they were volunteering on different days.
NOT SO OLD GRAY MARES CLUB
So they formed the “Not so old Gray Mares” club. They meet monthly and socialize while talking about ways that they can support the Volunteer Program.
AND THERE IS MORE FOR THIS
They have organized going away parties for me, a very special “Bubbles Appreciation Day” for our clients and help with celebration of birthday’s etc. I just thought I would share this spin on what you have recommended.
Hearts and Horses
P.S. Carrie, thanks so much for sharing this idea with everyone. You and ‘The Mares’ are absolutely great! – Judy
