  • Dispel the myths: Think upside-down … begin with the job title and then the description.
  • Pro-social volunteering – balance of good for the group and me
  • It’s our fault! The things we do and don’t do are the culprits of low recruitment, low retention, poor performance
  • Its calculated based on the mission, the timing, the success factor

  • Recast Volunteerism: to paint an inclusive picture
