Your nonprofit's volunteers help at your events, organize your office, and perhaps even work virtually on grants and social media. They ask only to know that what they do makes a difference.
What you might not realize about your volunteers, however, is that they are a source of great stories to help your organization spread your message and build support. After all, who better to talk about the great work you do than those who are so passionate about it, they help for free?
But what's the best way to capture and share the stories of your volunteers? For the June 2013 Nonprofit Insights webinar, Toan Lam, creator and host of GoInspireGo.com (GIG), and Villy Wang, Founder, President and CEO of nonprofit organization BAYCAT, shared ideas for volunteer storytelling, specifically using video.
Toan provided concrete tips that anyone can use to create poignant video stories, and Villy showed us how her organization has turned volunteer storytelling into an effective and impactful way to build support.
