A Guide for Faith- and Community-Based Service Providers
Use this to plan your volunteer program.
This guidance handbook is designed for community groups and faith-based organizations seeking to maximize the skills of their volunteers, expand their services to the community, and enhance their effectiveness. It covers planning, recruiting, training, managing, evaluating, sample forms and worksheets, and other resources.
Although the handbook focuses on prevention, treatment, and recovery services for substance abuse and mental illness, the principles described in the handbook can be applied to any field and should help organizations understand how to implement and manage a successful volunteer program.
