Volunteer recognition Volunteers are the backbone of the sport and recreation industry – it would not survive without them. Recognition is vital. Volunteer development A well trained and supported volunteer workforce is more sustainable.
Volunteers have a responsibility to… ensure they have the time necessary to take on a volunteer position; work within the policies and rules of the organisation; respect the privacy of staff, clients or members and other volunteers; be reliable and dependable; complete agreed hours and tasks; inform the organisation when they will not be available to volunteer; be loyal to the organisation; speak up about important issues and concerns; attend orientation and training sessions; follow directions given by supervisors; be a team player and support staff and other volunteers; be considerate about the views of staff, clients or members and other volunteers; identify their limitations and expectations; be accountable and accept constructive criticism.
