Planning Aids: Tools to Ensure Volunteer and Event Successes
A collection of "Volunteer Planning Aids" was developed to assist agents and volunteers in completing and conducting programs, events and activities. Planning Aids include step-by-step instructions with a timeline for each program, event, or activity. Extension professionals may download and tailor the generic Planning Aids to fit local needs. While Planning Aids may also be helpful to Extension professionals, their greatest value is in guiding volunteers successfully through complex or multi-faceted tasks. Constant supervision becomes unnecessary, and orienting volunteers to the full scope of their positions is easier when Volunteer Planning Aids are utilized.
