Volunteer-Recruitment for 2012 Back to School
By tutormentor2 @ 6:32 PM :: 3264 Views :: Article Rating :: Volunteering
 

With school starting this month volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs all over the country are ramping up plans to recruit volunteers and donors. Are there better ways to do this?

Visit the Tutor/Mentor Institute and read some of the ideas we share about Volunteer Mobilization. If a non profit does a good job on their web site and in social media of describing what they do and  how volunteers can get involved, increasing the number of people who look at their web sites can be done if local businesses, faith groups, media and political leaders are talking about how volunteer and donor involvement in tutor/mentor programs can make a difference.

Thus, how can you and your volunteers persuade more leaders to talk about tutor/mentor programs in your community, and talk about more than just the few highly visible programs that do great work, but reach only a small number of youth in a community. See how the Chicago Program Locator enables people to find information about more than 150 programs in Chicago.

Leave a message if you'd like our help in building a strategy like this for your community.
