Free Volunteer Management in Sport Toolkit
Given that an active volunteer workforce is critical to Australian sport, it is perhaps surprising that very few sporting organisations have a dedicated focus on volunteer management. Sports volunteers represent the power of volunteering in communities and individual lives.
That’s why Volunteering Victoria has developed a free sports specific Volunteer Management Toolkit to help clubs support their volunteers.
Imagine the cost if we had to pay for services volunteers deliver! Imagine sport without volunteers.
Download your free copy<http://volunteeringvictoria.org.au/volunteering-in-sport/> of Volunteering Victoria’s Volunteer Management in Sport Toolkit – a fully editable Word document with templates to help your club find, develop and support volunteers.
Sport at all levels in Australia is heavily reliant on volunteers for every aspect of its development and delivery.
