Why I Don't Use Volunteers - PDXTech4Good

Presentation given on April 1, 2015 to PDXTech4Good

How do you communicate the impact of your organization’s volunteers? Whether through social media, your website, email, or word of mouth, the way we talk about volunteers matters. I’ll share why you shouldn't say you “use” volunteers, what you should say instead, and showcase specific examples from organizations who are leading the way when it comes to communicating volunteer impact.
