Team and volunteer engagement requires an organization to consider many factors before deciding what type of activities to undertake and how to achieve them. One is the need to determine which types of activities are compatible with the skills of the volunteers, both in terms of skill set and personality.

The third factor is that there needs to be an assessment of the current level of success and failure in these efforts so that the committee may establish what is working and what is not.

Team and Volunteer Engagement; A Call For Upvote’s for Change
For volunteer committees that work with youth teams, it may be helpful to consider activities that engage the interests of the youth and help them identify their passions and drive to do something positive for their community. These may include things like doing fundraisers, hosting sports tournaments, and having a board of directors to take on the various duties needed. In order to have a successful team and volunteer engagement program, there needs to be a structure in place to allow people to feel like they are respected and to feel like their ideas are being considered. When team and volunteer engagement works well, the leaders of the organization enjoy working as well as enjoying the results.
When considering the development of programs and volunteering, organizations should look into what type of services could be offered to the community that could bring in additional income. One example is a non-profit organization that serves children who are from low-income families. With the help of the NPO, the team members could offer courses that teach art, science, and social justice to underprivileged kids. These courses would then be upsold to individuals who agree to pay the fees. By doing this, the NPO ensures that it keeps the existing clientele while also gaining new clients. As the non-profit grows, its revenue increases as well; and in turn, it will become more effective at serving the needs of the community.
