WASCA has a number of resources to help you recruit, retain and reward your volunteers. After all, your volunteers are your most precious resource.
If you have exhausted the pool of volunteers at your school it’s time to spread the net a little wider. Many Parent bodies and canteens are reaching out to agencies such as Seek, Volunteering WA and local resource centres to engage with a whole new pool of people other then those directly involved with the school community. For some great ideas of places to contact see this article – Volunteers: Get them, keep them and thank them!
Once you have your volunteers making them feel welcome is vital. We have developed a comprehensive Volunteer Welcome Kit. This kit aims to help you welcome, train, retain, recognise and reward volunteers with the objective of operating a successful food business. This resource is for WASCA Members, simply send us an email and we will forward it directly to you.
