The Volunteer’s Journey – A step-by-step guide to locating and recruiting volunteers

With this tool you can draw out those aspects in your strategy that help volunteers make a decision about who and where they will volunteer.

Some of the deciding factors may include: the goals of your organisation the actual work that needs to be done what support and training you offer whether they have the necessary skills to undertake the task the times and days that volunteer will need to come in.

The recruitment process is divided into a number of steps, each beginning with: questions the volunteer will ask themselves questions you and your organisation would be asking in response action steps you can take to bridge the gap between the volunteer’s wants and your needs.

The purpose of the step-by-step guide is to help you understand what will bring a volunteer to your door but you can find many more resources to help you and your volunteers on the Volunteering Australia website.
