Recruiting Talent Volunteers
This animated presentation shows how volunteers grow more involved as they engage with youth in well organized tutor/mentor programs and how this leads them to enlist friends and family. We call this a "service learning loop" because it repeats every week. The project was created in 2011 by an intern from Korea.
Not everyone can be a one-on-one volunteer, yet many people can use their talent, time and dollars to help other people be one-on-one volunteers. This project shows how college and high school students, and volunteers in technology and advertising companies could be creating advertising and training material that support the growth of tutor/mentor programs in many locations. To engage more members of your church or business in volunteerism, consider building a campaign to enlist the TALENT VOLUNTEER. Review this Recruiting Talent Volunteers pdf for ideas.
