Tips to Increase Volunteer Participation
The team at Tech Networks of Boston has always been passionate about getting involved and making a difference. Whether its being a founding member of the Climate Action Business Association (CABA), getting involved with Southie Trees, sending our founder to Borneo to volunteer for the Orangutan Foundation, or donating to our clients for #GivingTuesday – we love using business as a force for good. Our employees also love volunteering for their local churches, raising money for children’s literacy, serving on different Boards, and bringing awareness to LGBTQ+ issues. Giving back is at the core of what we do, so we were excited to work with Swing Left Greater Boston in creating their website just in time for the Midterm Elections.
Over time, we have learned a lot about volunteering and recruiting volunteers to important causes. We spoke with our staff and put together a few hard-won tips that we hope can help others make a difference in the world. Whether you’re creating a website, trying to reach out on social media, or recruiting community members to volunteer at an event, we hope you find something useful!
