About the book

  1. Description

VOLUNTEERING is an excellent handbook providing insights and tools to those looking to volunteer, and for those who have taken on the rewarding task of leading and managing volunteers. Volunteering and managing volunteers can be a complex process. However, this text provides one with a concise and accessible primer on the strategic management of the critical human resources that make many organizations work—volunteers. Burgher and Snyder combine Leadership 101 with the everyday realities of management in mission-driven environments with limited resources. The book is written in a clear conversational style that makes it pleasant to read, and easy to apply to various volunteer assignments. Every volunteer manager and/or volunteerism enthusiast should delve into its pages to find their way or to hone their skills and further discover the fascinating world of volunteering.
