13 Recruiting Templates for You

November 13, 2013 in Making a Difference

As the season for giving approaches, it’s a great time to ask for volunteers.

Did you know there is a full suite of marketing templates you can use to recruit them? Produced this spring as part of the PowerUP! initiative, these templates are professionally designed as a service to you. And they’re all available on the Aging Network’s Volunteer Collaborative website.

The 13 PowerUP! recruiting templates run the gamut from sample ads and articles for your newsletter to sample press releases, with plenty of items in between.

Customize Them for Your Needs

You may customize all of these templates to meet your agency’s needs. Some templates are Word documents that you can use as a framework and edit, adding your own information.

Other templates—the print ads, flyer, and postcard—are PDF files that you can download and edit. They have special fields where you can list your volunteer needs and contact information. The headline and artwork stays intact, to save you the time and expense of creating your own. You can print these at your office or send the file to a printer.

Template List

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be featuring individual templates and how you can use them to create a volunteer recruiting campaign that sings. This time, we’d like to share a quick overview of what’s available:

Please check them out, use them to entice volunteers to your next project, and let us know what you think.  Have you used the templates already?  If so, please give us your thoughts in the Comments below. We’d love your feedback—what worked for you plus any improvements you’d suggest.

We look forward to hearing from you!
