(2 of 3) Failing to train volunteers effectively If they do not know what they’re supposed to be doing half the time, they are not going to perform well and they know it – this can be hugely discouraging. Failing to coordinate volunteers with other employees Frequent miscommunication can be frustrating and might be that last straw for a volunteer. www.readysetpresnt.com Page 21 Why Do Volunteers Leave?

(3 of 3) Failing to accommodate needs If someone has volunteered their time but can only work odd hours, and you want them on a routine schedule, they will not be able to.

Do not allow past decisions to hold you back. Each decision is your new chance to be a star. There may be many right answers.
