Community Building, Working with Volunteers

Community Building, Working with Volunteers     

Today, many communities are managed in large part by volunteers. Volunteers hold elected positions in government, lead and run community boards and organizations, operate fire departments, raise funds for schools, and are stewards of a community’s natural resources. The time, energy and resources they bring are critical to the community’s existence. As financial and paid human resources are allocated to address complex and critical community issues, volunteer resources step in to fill the gap. More and more in rural communities, volunteers are the lifeblood of a community’s day ?to?day functioning.
