In the first step of this barter, Erika Radu will assist you in establishing how and where to find volunteers in your local community. This process begins with taking a look at what you will need volunteers for. Radu will ask you how many volunteers you believe you will need for your project, how many roles need to be filled and what exactly the event will entail. This can make all the difference, as some volunteering positions might require more previous experience than others. Radu will also help you locate resources that will allow you to promote your event as well as your current need for volunteers, supporters or gift givers.
Once you have enlisted the help of volunteers, you’ll want to be able to give them specific instructions on what to do and when. For this part of the barter, Volunteer Management Expert Erika Radu will assist you in creating a day-to-day schedule that will outline the who, what and where of the event’s volunteering needs. This schedule will work as the framework for your event, as you will be able to determine how to make the absolute best use of your time.
