How to Raise Volunteers; Avoid Indentured Servants

Synagogues, and all congregations, reward successful volunteers with more opportunities to volunteer. Although people do not usually volunteer for personal recognition and gain, appreciation, recognition and celebration of their gifts provide the “rewards” that keep capable volunteers energized and dedicated.

The Center shares its learning with a national audience.
