Editorial Reviews

Review

For over two decades, numerous campaigns, serving as the Director of the country's premier volunteer agency, the United States Peace Corps, and today, serving in the United States Senate, volunteers have been the cornerstone of our successes. Jo Rusin appears to capture what it takes to make a volunteer program work. Her book is an excellent primer for those who oversee volunteer organizations, as well as for those stewards who give so unselfishly of their time and talent. -- Paul D. Coverdell, United States Senator--Georgia, Former Director of the United States Peace Corps

Format: Paperback
I haven't always known the best way to approach volunteers, and this book provides some excellent ways to help me mazimize their talents. It is easy to read and has a good flow and logic, asks some tough questions yet provides possible solutions. I found the book filled with humor and I highly recommend that if you have to recruit volunteers, or work with them, this book will get you going down the right path.

Working with volunteers can be a most challenging yet gratifying struggle. Jo Rusin's book puts in writing the secrets of recruiting, training, motivating, and retaining volunteers. This is a great book, one I know will prove highly successful. It came through when I really needed this information.

As a person who has been trying to give my time and talent to a large northwestern organization for the last six months, I highly recommend this reading to their volunteer coordinators. They have successfully made very mistake Rusin points out in this excellent book. It should be required reading!

Format: Paperback
I learned many things from this book. I was surprised
at the great points and information this book had to offer.
I recommend that any officer of a organization give this book a try and see how it helps you. What a resource and I enjoyed it very much. Just trying to get new members in our organization is difficult and this book offered many ways to do that.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought an $80.00 book before I bought this one, because the title made me believe that I was getting all the info I needed in one book. Well I wasted that $80.00 because it is very hard to read. So, I finally bought this book...Volunteers Wanted. This book has given me more information than the $80.00 one did. I wish I had bought this book first.
