The NGO handbook of volunteer management essentials
Sociology, Egyptology & Anthroplology Department
Description or Abstract
A short handbook that addresses why NGOs need volunteers, how they can benefit from them, how to effectively manage volunteers, tips on how to ensure that volunteers remain a benefit rather than a burden on NGOs, recruitment methods and tools, sample forms, and a list of recommended publications for further reading. This handbook was created as coursework for the community based learning anthropology and sociology course “Third World Development”, at The American University in Cairo, under the instruction of Pandeli Glavanis, during the Fall 2012 semester. It was created using Plan Egypt as our focus group. The inspiration for this handbook was the authors’ own experiences working as volunteers with various NGOs.
