Volunteer Management

Volunteers’ ideas, energy and ability to connect with others are crucial resources for nonprofits and philanthropies organizations to perform their role in society. Engaging volunteers is an essential part of the early stages of the life cycle of many nonprofits and philanthropies and also builds the capacity of nonprofits and philanthropies at any stage of the organization cycle. Volunteers provide a critical connection between nonprofits and philanthropies and their communities. They bring needed skills, connections, insights and resources. They also serve as valuable advocates and public relations ambassadors. Nonprofits and philanthropies have an obligation to act as responsible stewards of the skills, energy and time that volunteers bring to the organization. Nonprofits and philanthropies should create thoughtful structures and processes to manage volunteer time and abilities and direct volunteer energies to effectively advance the organization’s mission
