In a recent post on their blog, Piasecznyr PR very kindly quoted our post about making life easier for volunteers, and linked in turn to a great quiz from Women's Day.
It's ten simple questions that help you identify the kind of volunteer
work you personally might enjoy... and it's definitely not just for women, men can try it too!
The quiz identifies 3 high-level kinds of volunteers, grouped mainly by their comfort in working with others:
- Center-Stage Caregivers are at their best in leadership roles. In your organization, these folks could be put in charge of event management, perhaps as the chair of a committee to organization your annual meeting or other large event.
- Hands-on Helpers are good in groups and gravitate to
well-structured, supportive roles. People who have this kind of profile
could be well-suited to a role such as membership coordinator, where they are able to help track recruitment and renewals.
- Anonymous Advocates work best on their own or one-on-one. This could be your web content editors or newsletter writers, working behind the scenes to help keep other volunteers and members informed.
Which one of these are you?
