Marketing and promotion of Volunteer Requests
Email of new events to our database of Special Event Volunteers
We promote your volunteer needs through a variety of methods, including:
- An on-line listing of volunteer opportunities.
- Weekly Volunteer Highlights advertising in Print, Radio, TV, Faxing, E-mails, Facebook, Twitter, and many online classifieds.
- Making referrals to phone-in, walk-in, or emailed-in volunteers based on matching their skills and interests to your request.
Review the Membership Fees to determine your category. You can contact the office to discuss job description(s) requirements and the number of volunteer placement(s) you are seeking.
Complete the downloadable Volunteer Request Form for each position or event to be promoted. REMEMBER: it is important to make your volunteer recruitment plans well in advance of your needs. We’ll need at least two weeks to try to properly recruit volunteers for you. PDF Version
When volunteers are referred to you from our office they will be given a referral form with your agency’s information and position description. Upon request, we will also send a report of the volunteers who have been referred to you. Submit your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important to make some type of contact soon after potential volunteers are referred to you – even if it’s just to let them know how long it will take you to get back to them!
