Want to get more youth and their families to volunteer at your organization? GenerationOn's new "Ready-Set-Go! Resource Guide" aims to help nonprofits "increase their capacity to engage youth and family volunteers."
The strategies and best practices found in the guide come from a five-city pilot project that began in 2012 to bring together the expertise of more than 20 volunteer managers. You'll learn how to reach out to and recruit young volunteers, prepare staff to work with youth, plan appropriate community service projects with young people, and guide them in their efforts.
