Running a successful nonprofit organization means getting volunteers that are devoted and passionate. Let apps help you find these volunteers, help you train, manage, and keep them as a part of your team.
Founding or managing a nonprofit organization can be an incredibly fulfilling role, but it takes a lot of skills to help start or lead the organization to success. One of the most important parts of a nonprofit organization, is its volunteers. How to recruit and retain volunteers is a very important strategy for any nonprofit. Luckily, in this day and age, the power to find passionate volunteers can be found in your hand. There are great apps out there that can really help your organization find good volunteers and help keep them engaged in the work they are doing. There are volunteer recruitment websites for free or little cost that allow you to post your need for help. There are also apps that focus on volunteer postings that allow you to open an account for free and post. You can post as often as you like for volunteer positions opening up at your organization, descriptions of the work needed, and a summary about what your organization is working towards. Certain apps can help you find creative ways to engage volunteers to be passionate about the good work you are doing. Apps can help you create fun events to not only attract people to volunteer, but also fundraise for your organization at the same time. Having an active presence on these apps will allow your organization to pick top volunteers. Achieve great results by finding passionate people that will help you achieve your organization’s ultimate objective.
Now that volunteers have been recruited, it's time to manage and train your passionate helpers. These people are taking time and energy to help you achieve the goals for the organization’s cause. It is important to not only be organized, but bring your volunteers together and make each of them feel special and important. To run a successful business, each person involved needs to feel like their work is valued, especially when there’s not a paycheck at the end of the month. You need to find fun ways to train volunteers that is both engaging and informative. Find apps that give you ideas to encourage teamwork and keep attention through the training process. For example, after explaining how the staff feed the puppies (and why it must be done in the system you have in place) at the rescue nonprofit you run, put your volunteers into teams and let them decorate the information sheets on the puppies. Best team gets cuddles from the puppies. The importance of volunteer training is crucial to the mission of the organization, all the volunteers should be on the same page so you have a safe, fun, and structured environment. There are also volunteer management apps that allow you to schedule and communicate with your whole staff of volunteers easily. You can use this to inform them on training subjects, new projects or weekly updates. Creating a successful volunteer program will make your life easier and your volunteers happy and devoted.
