Volunteer Management and Terminology

Volunteer management, volunteer recognition, volunteer recruitment

Hi Everyone,

Here is another quick idea for you on volunteer management.

What message are you sending by the language used in your forms and promotional material?

Using terms like “community service” and “helping others” will only attract a certain type of person.

If you change the language to emphasize training opportunities, skills development and personal growth, you will attract a wider range of people. In other words, choose language to open up possibilities rather than close doors.


This is another great idea for you from the two best-selling books full of ideas on Managing Volunteers, as well as Volunteer Recruitment, Volunteer Recognition and Retention for those in Volunteer Management.
