Column: Volunteers provide more than monetary value

Column: Volunteers provide more than monetary value | Today in Volunteering | Scoop.it

I always seemed to have a large proportion of volunteers from Wisconsin when I managed volunteer groups. Of course, during the winter I can understand why they were in sunny Tucson, but the fact that they always seemed to be engaged in the community was really nice. Now that I've had the opportunity to spend time in WI, and especially Madison, I can appreciate that the community has a history of community activism that goes back many years.

Want to Know What Makes Millennials Tick? Hint: Ask One

Want to Know What Makes Millennials Tick? Hint: Ask One | Today in Volunteering | Scoop.it

Millennials have different motives for volunteering than other groups, like "we're much more likely to get involved because of our friends instead of your mission", or "if we get mail from you, we'll wonder why you spent the time and money". It's a fun article, and important because approaching volunteers is ALL about understanding and responding to their motives for recruitment and retention.

Sierra 's curator insight, December 11, 2012 12:23 PM

My Thoughts:

I think this article is awesome because it describes several ideas and activities that you and your family can do to help out in your community. Personally, i dont have a very functional family but in my opinion if more families focused on working TOGETHER and helping others that they will build a stronger bond seeing other people being so thankful for the little things and that will help people realize what they have and that they need to be thankful.
