Volunteer Best Practices¶
Here are our best practices for running a successful volunteer signup drive:
- Limit the number of volunteer positions to no more than 10.
- If you have more than 10 positions, add a 'Contact me with other opportunities'.
- Use the description fields to help volunteers understand time commitments.
- Review responses each year and remove positions with poor participation.
- Translate your position titles and descriptions into languages natively spoken by the parents.
- Use FutureFund to send emails to volunteers.
- Send an email shortly after registration thanking them for volunteering.
- Host a end of season party to thank the volunteers for their contributions.
