Instituting a new volunteer program or reenergizing an existing one involves a process that covers a range of management functions-from needs assessment, volunteer position development, and recruitment, to supervision, evaluation, and recognition. These processes are interdependent and together create a synergy that will enliven your volunteer program. Once instituted, an effective approach to volunteer management will perpetuate itself.
