Volunteer Job Description Tool
- Is your group or organization struggling to find volunteers?
- Do you need help recruiting volunteers?
- When is the last time your group reflected on what jobs need to be done by your organization? And HOW you do those jobs?
- Do you have a document stating what each volunteer does for your organization in case someone was to leave?
This tool may be very useful for you! Laying out the information may help others decide if they can commit to a volunteer position. It may help others understand what it is exactly they would need to do as well as inform them about the time commitment. The Langenburg Community Development Board can assist you with this tool as well as help advertise for your volunteer openings.
