How very encouraging! Our initial email to a new volunteer applicant, Linda, was met with the following reply:
“I am especially pleased to answer the questions because it assures me that the organization is doing its part in making a “match”. I like that …
My motivation for pursuing volunteer work at this stage in my life is simply to continue to give and to learn—what schools and classrooms cannot teach.
I would defer to those making placements to find a match for my skills and interests and the needs of the organization … my preference is to work where I can be of most assistance; and my schedule for participation is flexible.”
Thanks Linda – I’m already enjoying working with you!
