Our volunteer program has recently reached a fairly positive situation in that our organization is working with a large number of volunteers for our size and the capacity we have.
In looking to be able to continue to expand and develop the program, as well as the volunteers that we have I am wanting to establish some of our existing volunteers as ‘team leaders’ to help manage and support other existing volunteers.
The leaders would be working across specific areas that they are involved in such as office / administration, complementary therapies and counseling.
Does anyone have a similar system in place? What training has been provided to help the leaders ‘step up’ to the roles and how productive have people found similar arrangements?
Any help or suggestions gratefully received.
