Many groups struggle with getting people to help out. Homeschool leader Michele Gross shares some great tips for recruiting volunteers with host Carol Topp. Michele has been a homeschool leader for 15 years and currently is the founder and director of The Learning Connection in New Jersey.

In this episode of the HomeschoolCPA podcast, Carol Topp will share:

 

  • Don’t strive for an event. If you have no volunteers, there is no event.
  • Poll members for their gifts and talents. Michele has tips and ideas on how to collect that information
  • How to pull a volunteer out of their comfort zone.
  • Talk individually and ask for volunteers in person, if possible.
  • Train your replacement. Reproduce yourself or the group may not last.

My favorite quote from Michele was “Sharing your knowledge is the best thing you can do for the next generation of homeschool moms.”
