Youth Volunteer Life Cycle: Recruit, Retain, Recognize

1 month ago 1 month ago Published by
This toolkit was developed by Halton Youth Initiative.

HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:

The Halton Youth Initiative was a project of the Our Kids Network, serving the Ontario communities of North Oakville, Acton, Aldershot, and Milton.

The Youth Volunteer Life Cycle represents the key aspects of a young person’s experience with volunteering. The Halton Youth Initiative identified three areas of focus: how to recruit, how to retain, and how to recognize youth volunteers.

This online toolkit includes:

  • a Practice Brief, sharing key insights about the Youth Volunteer Life Cycle gathered from young leaders, program leaders, and agencies;
  • an Infographic, detailing the three key stages of the Youth Volunteer Life Cycle;
  • Tip Sheets, outlining all the stages of the Youth Volunteer Life Cycle;
  • a Video Playlist, including a collection of videos that explore the qualities of a good volunteer position, the key elements in building successful youth volunteer roles, using technology to enhance youth roles and teams, and how we can we make volunteerism more accessible;
  • a Presentation, serving as a companion to the Practice Brief, introducing the Youth Volunteer Life Cycle to your group or staff team.

This is one of several online resource toolkits developed by Halton Youth Initiative.
