EPISODE 031: How to Provide a Clear On-Ramp for New Volunteers


Show Notes:

This week’s content is a follow-up to what I talked about last week. On the last episode, we tackled the Number One question I get asked as I am traveling speaking and coaching to media production teams around the country and that is, “how do we get new volunteers on our team?”. I’m going to share with you how to provide a clear on-ramp for new volunteers that join your team. What do I mean by “on-ramp”? I mean the pathway or the funnel or the steps someone who shows interest in your team can get from interest to a well-trained veteran volunteer on your team.

Here is the “On-Ramp” for New Volunteers I discussed in this Episode:

  1. Church Membership or Ownership Class.
  2. Opportunities Tours.
  3. Production First Look.
  4. BASICS Training.
