Volunteer tips

To have an effective volunteering programme you need to plan ahead!

  • Plan your Volunteer Program with the Managing Volunteers Checklist
  • Regularly monitor your Volunteer Programme so that you are in a position to respond to the shifting workloads that arise leading up to and during the event. 
  • Select quality volunteers. Attitude is the key to great service and quantity is not better than quality. Select volunteers who have the right skills and enthusiasm.
  • Do not underestimate your volunteer expenses when setting your event budget. Volunteers are not free labour and you need to plan for the appropriate expenses.
  • Provide great volunteering opportunities and experiences to engage volunteers and encourage them to return to your event.
