Weekly Taste of the Volunteering Resource Library

Volunteering Resource LibraryEach Friday we’ll end the week on Engaging Volunteers by posting up a few of the latest and greatest meaty documents from the VolunteerMatch Volunteering Resource Library on the IdeaEncore Network for you to peruse.

  • College Students Helping America
    This report from the Corporation for National and Community Service presents data on student volunteering and volunteers.  It also includes a state-by-state ranking of college student volunteering.
  • Will Retiring Boomers Form a New Army of Volunteers?
    This study looks at older adults retiring between 1996 and 2004 to see who engages in formal volunteering after retirement. The results show that while most volunteers acquire the habit while still working, a significant share begins volunteer work after retirement.
  • Socializing Your Volunteer Program
    This Ignite presentation, presented by our own in-house expert Robert Rosenthal at the 2010 Nonprofit Technology Conference,  explores how nonprofits can effectively recruit, manage, and “activate” volunteers using Web 2.0 and social sharing technologies.
