Recognize and Celebrate, Tell the Story

Volunteers are essential for nonprofits to create positive change in the world. Recognizing and celebrating volunteers is necessary in order to retain, recruit and keep the overall work environment positive and appreciative.

  • Recognition: The best way to recognize the work of a  pro bono volunteer is to  proclaim the results of the project and explain how the skills of the volunteer  made a difference. It is focused on the content of the work done and its impact.

  • Celebration: Celebrating a skills-based volunteer project and the accomplishments of volunteers is equally as important as recognizing their efforts. And it needs to happen regularly along the project.

  • Storytelling: Storytelling is one of the best ways to get people excited about the project and engage more volunteers but it is also a great approach to recognize and to celebrate the work done by the pro bono volunteer.
