Volunteer Manager's Tip of the Month

Holiday season is here and lots of your volunteers may be unavailable for a few weeks. Try to make a list of when everyone expects to be away and plan how you will manage without them. Could you involve some second or third level students in any of your organisations volunteer roles over the summer?
