Aligning the Volunteer Application with the Opportunities

I've spent many hours over the past 4 years working to refine the process of effectively matching interested volunteers to the most appropriate placements. After several iterations, I completely changed up the application that my organization uses to do this - a refresh for 2011, as it were. My aim was also to align the application with the concept of strategic volunteering, help applicants walk themselves through the discovery/goal alignment process, and make it easier for volunteer managers to find the right fits.

Here's the result: http://www.mywit.org/system/contents/12/original/WIT_Volunteer_Application_2011.pdf

What do you think?

  1. I love the process this application takes potential volunteers through - it helps future leaders determine the "holes" in their resume, and they can sharpen those skills through the right volunteer position. Current leaders can utilize the right volunteer position to give back to the community while they build their networks.
