To recruit volunteers effectively and to ensure the volunteers have the necessary passion and dedication, it is critical to know what we exactly need. To do that we need to create a profile of an ideal volunteer.
List the organisation and its goals.
The ideal volunteer would be hard to come by. Play to people's strengths and actual abilities (rather than perceived strength).
Volunteer profile:bottom line
1. List all the characteristics one is looking for
2. Be specific
3. Match at least 2 of the characteristics
4. Play to people's strength
The mission needs to be very clear.
