We have a five-step process for on-boarding new volunteers. The final step is attending a volunteer orientation. The purpose of this orientation is to cover the big picture. Hands-on, age specific, on-the-job training then happens in the age environments they will be serving in.
Here is the handout we cover in our orientation. The orientation is held each weekend during a service. Would love to hear about your volunteer orientation and see any handouts, notes, etc that you cover. You can share them with us in the comment section below.
