  • Can We Get Some Volunteers, Please? - Next Avenue, an NPR blog. Richard Eisenberg, one of my favorite experts on Boomers and Seniors, says that Boomers are turned off by many volunteer opportunities because they are boring. He found some nonprofits that are going out of their way to attract these valuable folks and put them to work.

  • How to Overcome Volunteer Reluctance - Volunteer Match. Dean Velia guest posts about what truly motivates volunteers, and how you can tap into what naturally drives them.

  • Revisiting the Seven Deadly Sins of Directing Volunteers - Energize! Susan Ellis tracks the changes in best volunteer management practices by editing a 1980s version of them. See what has changed in 30 years.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Claire! Doing these lists is fun and daunting all at the same time. Just because there is so much terrific content in the nonprofit field now. Very busy place…LOL.
