Recruiting and Managing Volunteers in Museums : A Handbook for Volunteer Management Paperback

Part of the American Association for State & Local History series

Description

We are in the middle of a museum paradigm shift and a new type of museum volunteer is emerging from the community.

Non-profit volunteers are looking for unique and satisfying ways to engage in their communities and museums are primed to offer just the experiences these volunteers are looking for.

Here's a practical exploration of the differences between the "then" and "now" volunteers and solid advice on volunteer recruitment, communication, and retention strategies.

Written in a light hearted spirit, Recruiting and Managing Volunteers in Museums: A Handbook to Volunteer Management will engage and inform any professional tasked with developing and managing a volunteer program at their institution.

Museums offer an amazing array of volunteer opportunities that help create a greater sense of belonging and purpose for the volunteer.

With a growing number of retiring professionals and students looking for professional experiences, now is the time to embark on developing a volunteer program that will thrive in the years to come.
