Sometimes it gets lonely out there in the non-profit sector.
And you certainly don’t feel like saying, “rah-rah-sis-boom-bah” when you’re the only one cheerleading for your cause. You may work in isolation most days and take on the majority of duties doing everything under the sun yourself. But know that volunteers are the secret weapon to helping you run your cause.
But in a world where money talks and everybody has their hand out, there is indeed hope for getting free help through recruiting volunteers. I think a lot of times we look for help in all the wrong places. Putting up flyers in the grocery store is not necessary the best approach.
