On this episode we discuss about volunteers and team building.

Relational connections are the best way to recruit volunteers.

If we are only good at the announcement part, we won’t see the outcome we want.

Be specific with your communication when recruiting team members.

People respond to visions and need.

Make training easy and accessible to your teams.

Don’t just recruit volunteers--identify leaders.

Communicate standards and expectations to your team upfront.

Make sure your volunteers know that they have a purpose and not just a function.
