~August 2011~

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has a series of self-study courses for those in the disaster preparedness business.  One of those course deals with volunteer administration.  Even if you do not manage volunteers during a disaster this self-study guide has information to help you organize volunteers.

Chapters include such things as:tornado

  • Needs analysis
  • Writing job descriptions
  • Writing a recruitment plan
  • Developing interview questions
  • Developing a training plan
  • Supervising and evaluating volunteers
  • Managing volunteer stress

There are case studies, checklists, scenarios, worksheets, links to other sites, tests, samples, and much more.  The writing is bulleted and easy to read and absorb.  The best part—it is free.  Even if disaster is not your mission the ideas on recruiting are generally applicable in most programs.
