The fifth of November is International Volunteer Managers Day, a holiday to celebrate the people who make it possible for others to volunteer their time and energy. At the OTW, the Volunteers & Recruiting Committee works tirelessly to manage the many people who keep the OTW and its projects running. Like all OTW committee and board staff, as well as our volunteers, Volunteers & Recruiting works entirely without pay. Their myriad responsibilities include:
- assigning tools and provides training and volunteer service resources to the rest of the organization.
- recruiting and managing incoming volunteers, handle exiting volunteers, handle all committee set up as well as chair and staff turnover.
- setting up tools for committees, subcommittees and workgroups, assist with internship processes, mentor volunteers in their work, and track the service of each and every volunteer throughout their time with the organization.
- ensuring that every volunteer in the organization has the resources they need to complete their work efficiently and effectively.
The OTW and its projects absolutely would not continue to function without the Volunteers & Recruiting Committee. On behalf of everyone at the OTW, thank you, Volunteers & Recruiting Committee!
