  • 1.  June Resource Drive: Volunteer Program Materials

    Posted 06-02-2022 02:52 PM

    Need more volunteers or want to revamp your volunteer programs? What better way to help each other than to share resources related to Volunteer Programs! No need to reinvent the wheel if we all share our successful tactics and resources. 


    The focus for our resource drive this month is volunteer program materials. 

    Volunteers are a critical part of your organization. When volunteers are properly trained and feel fully integrated they are more likely to drive forward your organization's mission, vision, values and can help recruit even more volunteers.


    You Can Participate In Two Ways:

    1. Upload/Share Volunteer Program Materials on this thread
    2. Reply with a request for a specific Volunteer Related Resource you NEED

    What Type of Resources Should You Share?

    • Educational Training for Volunteers (Orientations, Online Trainings, etc.)
    • Examples of Volunteer Position Applications or Screening Questions
    • Information about what roles volunteers fill in your organization/Volunteer job descriptions 
    • Volunteer recruitment ideas & creative (flyers, social media posts, etc.)
    • Volunteer Management Ideas for Leadership
    • Strategies for building and keeping a powerful, success-driven team of volunteers
    • Volunteer roles for all ages and abilities
    • Volunteer waivers


    Where Will All the Volunteer Program Resources be Stored? How do I view them? 

    All volunteer program resources will be accessible on Maddie's Pet Forum in the following folder: https://maddies.fund/volunteerprogrammaterials


    Share & You'll Be Entered To Win $50

    Everyone who uploads a file, shares a resource on this thread or replies with information about volunteer programs during the month of June will be entered to win a $50 gift card to Amazon, Petco or PetSmart (winner's choice).  Start sharing now!


    Pro-Tips for sharing resources: 

    • Use the "Upload File" button when replying to this thread to attach a file. We encourage you to attach the file versus hyperlinking to the file whenever possible. Files that are attached to discussion threads are automatically added to the Maddie's Pet Forum Resource Library so attaching helps make the resource searchable and improves accessibility within the forum.
    • Yes, you can share resources that your organization did not create. Sharing is caring and this applies to resources too! Make sure the creator allows the resource to be shared publicly and be sure to give credit to the creator or source organization.

    Here's some of our volunteer info. We allow kids as young as 8yrs of age to volunteer with us as well as school groups and youth and adults with disabilities. All of our training is the same as well as our application regardless of age.
