Abstract
This book was written for volunteer program managers, volunteers, and the staff who work closely with them. It stimulates creative thinking about finding, training, supervising, and supporting volunteers in a changing environment. It helps develop the ingredients for success: valuing volunteers, listening to them, welcoming them as part of a team, and providing a supportive community in which to work.
