Planning volunteer programs

Successful volunteer programs are the result of a careful planning and design process. Planning does not have to be complicated. Planning and design allows you to get the ideas for your volunteer program down on paper and test those ideas with the clients, stakeholders, employees, volunteers and other people who will be involved in turning your ideas into a reality.

The ideas, tips and tools in this section aim to help those involved with the planning, design or evaluation of a volunteer-involving program, no matter how large or small.
