Overcoming Barriers to Volunteer Assignment Completion
Coalitions are very effective prevention resources, yet coordinating coalitions present unique challenges. One universal challenge is motivating coalition volunteers to participate, complete and report on assignments. In this presentation, we will discuss how to overcome those challenges, and set volunteers up for success, from start to finish. We will discuss how to invite volunteers to help in the creation of assignments, how to make volunteer opportunities meaningful and doable and how to follow up on assignment completion. We will talk about how to present assignments in more appealing ways, and some simple tips you can implement to encourage coalition members to volunteer.
