Some Tips and Tricks...
Make Sure Everything is Complete
To capture volunteers' interest you're going to want to make sure every section of your Organization profile is filled out. This includes adding your logo, a cover photo, mission statement, causes, and any other external links you'd like to share such as a website, social media, blog etc. For more information on how to add these components, check out this article!
It's okay to be transparent around what stage your Organization is at on your profile. In fact, this will help volunteers better understand how they can assist when applying for your projects! Whether you're just starting out with a few staff members or have been around a while, don't be afraid to let people know that by including it in your Organization's 'Mission' section. This is also a great place to share any big picture goals your Organization might have and how you're looking to grow.
Add Your Colleagues
Ensuring that staff members are on your Organization profile is vital to working with volunteers effectively. It will also help your Organization profile stand out by showing volunteers who else works at your Organization and what motivates them. Bonus points: have everyone complete their Personal profiles with a photo, title, biography, passions, a Linkedin profile etc. to connect with volunteers on a deeper level.
