How to Raise Volunteers; Avoid Indentured Servants

Synagogues, and all congregations, reward successful volunteers with more opportunities to volunteer. Although people do not usually volunteer for personal recognition and gain, appreciation, recognition and celebration of their gifts provide the “rewards” that keep capable volunteers energized and dedicated. This article, presented by the Center for Congregations, discusses an approach to understanding and utilizing member gifts that can engage volunteers at the point of their deep passion, expand the pool of volunteers, and avoid over-utilization of the same small group of “at hand” membersThe Center for Congregations strengthens Indiana congregations by helping them find and use the best resources to address their challenges and opportunities. The Center shares its learning with a national audience.
