Editing Wikipedia on Volunteer Management
Our occasional columnist, Jayne Cravens sent an email recently lamenting the quality of the entries around volunteering that exist on Wikipedia. She suggested that many people start their researching on a topic at Wikipedia and use the references from that site to dig deeper into a topic. Her review of the volunteer sites located the following global topics: Nonprofit, Volunteering, Virtual Volunteering, Voluntary Sector, Grassroots, and Nonprofit Technology. Notably absent is anything on managing or engaging volunteers. Her call was for people who are knowledgeable to consider adding to the current information.
