Volunteer Recruitment in your Non-profit Organization

By Alexa Connelly

There are many opportunities for recruiting volunteers these days, especially since the Internet surge, but we still must keep in mind that this also increases the availability of predators to gain access to our nonprofit organization information. Screening is key! There are three types of screening processes including:

  1. written applications
  2. interviews
  3. references

If at any time a red flag pops up during an interview just STOP. The greater the risks associated with the volunteer task, the more extensive a screening must be. A more in-depth look can be found in license verifications, agency record checks, and federal and criminal history. Remember to always provide a truth clause for the applicant to sign verifying that all information provided is honest and true.
