It wasn’t easy at first to recruit volunteers, but as people started to see the benefits and the progress we were making they started to take an interest in what we were doing. We are really keen on involving youngsters since they are the next generation who will now take pride in what they have been involved in. We use social media to ask for help from volunteers, and we try to show the benefits of volunteering ie., a way of learning news skills or teaching skills to others, or offering something that will benefit others. We try to match our volunteers with their skills and talents in order for them to get the most out of the experience which seems to work well. This means that you have to get to know your volunteers well and make them feel appreciated.
