Why you need volunteers
Only once you have some volunteers interested in helping will you be ready to take your project to the next level. Here's why:
Volunteers can also help provide essential skills, knowledge and contacts that you, your team or your organisation lack and would take years to acquire.
You might be determined to do it all yourself, but wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to? And wouldn't it make sense to have someone cover your back if ever you're out of action or on holiday? Sharing the work around can reduce both stress and risk.
The more people there are involved in your project, with inside knowledge to be able to talk credibly, the greater the word of mouth.
By giving others the chance to volunteer with your project or group, you're also giving them the chance to gain valuable experience that could be the difference in helping them find employment, improve health or keep busy while learning new things, not to mention the opportunity to mix and mingle with new people.
