By Andy Fryar, Joy Noble and Louise Rogers
Truly an “essential guide,” the book is filled with solid information for both starting and strengthening a volunteer program in any setting. Since first published many volunteer program managers refer to this book as “my bible”, not as a one-time read but as a reference companion to be used as a practical tool day by day. Although written for an Australian audience, the concepts, case studies, checklists, and other useful tools are fully applicable anywhere in the world.
The 3rd edition has been updated to include:
- attitudes to volunteering by Baby Boomers and Generations X and Y
- volunteers who are no longer prepared to be seen as a pliant homogeneous group simply obeying orders; they expect to be seen as individuals who can choose to volunteer where and when they like – or choose not to volunteer
- increased awareness of the issues surrounding risk management for volunteer groups
- volunteering by corporations
