Train and Develop Volunteers

Each club may have its own individual culture, but the successful ones are very much aware of the importance of developing a stimulating and supportive environment for club volunteers across the board and this does not happen by itself.

Having the right people in place drives the direction of the club and ensures the clubs vision can be achieved.

Helping to ensure volunteers make most of their time and are happy and confident in delivering their role can make all the difference. Volunteers need to be given guidance on their role and the task you need them to support with, this is where a clear role description can really help, but the support shouldn’t stop there.

Being able to offer in house development through a mentoring scheme or being aware of the latest training opportunities positively shows those volunteering at your club, that you care about their personal development.

Keeping connected with your volunteers will help you to continually support them in their role and ensure that their needs are being met, which in turn will help keep a positive and vibrant volunteer family within your club.
