Love this, thanks. When you write it all out, it seems like common sense, but it's definitely not something we do. Thanks for the template!
Thanks, Jess, for weighing in. I agree - even when I was writing it, it resonated as common sense, but sometimes we can benefit from a simple guide that demystifies a situation that often feels fraught with emotion or stress in order to realize that common sense can offer a path. Good luck!
Thanks, Sue, for once again helping us all frame the right questions to ask about our work and the ways the volunteers can drive mission forward.
The information is good. We are in the middle of reopening. My experience is that it is a process of informing the volunteers, giving them time to consider their options, having the grace to let them change their minds, and being willing to keep asking. Circumstances change frequently in this season and people are all over the place in their level of comfort.
Thanks, Cynthia. I agree completely. Giving volunteers the space and "grace" as you put it to change their minds is so important during these ever-changing circumstances. I appreciate your perspective and experience!
