Why is the Volunteer onboarding survey important?

Your volunteers are one of your best resources. Not only are they available to commit time to your organisation but each one of them has a wide variety of skills and contacts who can support the work of your charity or non profit.

If you've got a training or onboarding programme that you run with new volunteers, you should be measuring the impact of that and getting a bit of feedback early doors from your volunteers.

Ultimately, it's important that they feel well supported to be effective. If they're not, how can you expect to make the most of their time, effort and networks.

Use this Volunteer Onboarding Survey template when your next volunteer joins.
