Motivation is the biggest challenge facing nonprofit organizations. Today, only one in five adults donates time to a group, and of those, many new and long-time members sometimes end up quitting; they feel their ideas and expertise are neither considered nor valued. But, with funding drying up, and contributions slipping, now, more than ever, organizations need their unpaid angels.

Managing volunteers and making sure they feel they are full-fledged contributors to the organization is a full-time job. This book will help you hire a volunteer program manager and set up a program that organizes, evaluates, and recognizes your volunteers. Also includes details on:
-- Attracting new volunteers and maintaining a community presence
-- Interviewing and selecting the right volunteers for your organization
-- Orientation and training for new volunteers
-- Maintaining volunteer commitment through supervision, support, and recognition
-- Evaluating volunteer performance and placement
-- Designing and using volunteer program forms and records
-- A listing of useful resources, a full bibliography, and helpful sample forms
