You may want to start by revisiting your listing. Could it be made more appealing with a few tweaks?
- Is the summary engaging? This is what will appear in search results so it’s your chance to grab the attention of your potential volunteer. Try to include key elements of the opportunity and how it will help your cause.
- Is the description easy to read? Is it well formatted?
- Is your “ask” too much? If your role requires lots of hours a week or there is too much responsibility, you may scare off potential volunteers. Can you break the role up into two or more roles?
- If you are very strict about what you need from a volunteer, it may be more difficult to find the right match. In your role description, be clear about what your “must haves” and “nice to haves” are.
How to edit your role
If you need to edit your role, go to your Dashboard, and under Manage Opportunities, find the role, and click the edit button. When you save, your changes will be published immediately. If you need to extend your deadline, you can do that here too.
