Richard Milewski kindly posted on Air Mozilla the video of the community building panel we did with people from the Girl Scouts, Red Cross, ZenDesk and AIESEC at the Community Builders meetup in December.
Making the video of the panel available will be helpful since there were a lot of great ideas that came up in the discussion with people working with large groups of volunteers at other organizations.
Here are just a few of the ideas that were discussed:
- The Red Cross develops volunteers as leaders by having every Manager level or above role have a volunteer counterpart
- The Red Cross also includes supporting volunteers in the performance review process of their staff
- The Girl Scouts has a big initiative to work with alumni to tap into all of the people who have taken part in Scouting at some point in their lives
Please leave comments here about other ideas and suggestions that were discussed in the panel that you find interesting.
