Why a Volunteer Toolkit?

Anyone who has been part of ensuring volunteers have a positive impact on their communities understands this does not happen in isolation. We need support in the form of trainings, tools, manuals, guides and human resources to oversee the Volunteer experience. Below you will find a series of resources to help you manage the paths of your volunteers.
