For many years, our focus has been more on the work that volunteers do, rather than fulfilling their needs. The times call for a better balance. If we understand what motivates AFSers, volunteer retention will follow.
When volunteers are satisfied, you can see an improvement in independence and accomplishments. By focusing on what keeps volunteers, potential volunteers will be attracted to the organization, making recruitment easier. What goes around comes around!
We’ve developed 5 motivational drivers to profile your volunteers. You can use them to assign better roles, define more effective learning paths, reduce disengagement, and more!
