Volunteer Orientation...How to Set New Volunteers Up for Success

If you want to set new volunteers up for success, then make sure you have a new volunteer orientation.

This should be a key component of your on boarding process.

Here are some important elements to include in an orientation.
  • Fun, "get to know you" icebreaker.
  • Vision - share the "why" of what you do.
  • Core Values - share "what" you are committed to.
  • Principles that guide your ministry.
  • Expectations.
  • Safety and security procedures.
  • General policies and procedures.
Here is the opening video we created for orientation.  Our orientations are held during weekend services and last for an hour.

Okay. It's your turn. Share your questions or thoughts about orientations in the comment section below.
