Communication to volunteers about progress
Great communication about volunteering success will bring you fast results.
It is a great idea to tell your existing volunteers what it going on in your charity. This communication will give them the feeling of being involved.
They will understand that other people value their work so much that they too would like to get involved. They can see that “the Committee” or the bosses are actually pursuing new people to lighten the load.
They can see that they are part of a growing charity while sometimes they may feel that they are doing all the work on their own (even though they are not)
