TRY THIS ONE TRICK TO ATTRACT MORE VOLUNTEERS TO YOUR ORGANISATION!
Do you have a few people in your community organisation who do all the work?
Do you struggle to get everything done?
Do you feel overwhelmed?
This new trend is revolutionising volunteering!
In an era where time is precious, it’s important to break down complex roles into easily manageable tasks. This makes volunteering more accessible to all ages and stages and empowers people to contribute without feeling overwhelmed.
Most people avoid volunteering for fear of it being too much of a commitment, therefore breaking it down into a one-off task takes away this fear. For example, put a call out to someone to help with one of these tasks. This way they can try the task and get a taste for it, and hopefully pick up another task after that, without any obligation to.
- Creating a social media schedule
- Creating a marketing plan
- Completing a risk assessment
- Create an HR policy
- Create an event plan
This way you are reaching out to a broad range of professionals who can even complete these tasks from the comfort of their own home.
If you need a place to attract volunteers from, you can list the above tasks on NFP House’s Volunteer Portal at nfphouse.org.au
We encourage you to continue to adapt and innovate, helping the future of volunteering and your community organisation.
