Foster an Exchange of Ideas
The Internet not only permits you to communicate with your volunteers but can let your volunteers interact with each other, even if they are located in distant reaches of the country. An online blog gives volunteers an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with fellow volunteers.
Online discussions usually work best if a volunteer leader or manager moderates them. For example, the moderator leads off with a different topic or questions each month and volunteers post their input and responses. Volunteers might share tips for running an upcoming fundraising event, or explore how to deal with sensitive issues in their volunteer work.
