  6. Tips from Bonnie O’Neill, Tutor Coordinator, (WELL) CSPCD, Temple University

  7. 1. Search within a 10 mile radius; do a Google search of the following: • Business associations • Banks • Police/Firemen • Schools (don't just look for retired teachers - a lot of currently employed teachers  are interested in volunteering)  • Churches  • Local small businesses  • Libraries  • Local community groups; i.e.. knights of Columbus; concerned black men; young professional groups, etc.  • Etc.  **Visit these places and put together a small presentation to pitch to them. 

  8. 1. Search within a 10 mile radius; do a Google search of the following: • Business associations • Banks • Police/Firemen • Schools (don't just look for retired teachers - a lot of currently employed teachers  are interested in volunteering)  • Churches  • Local small businesses  • Libraries  • Local community groups; i.e.. knights of Columbus; concerned black men; young professional groups, etc.  • Etc.  **Visit these places and put together a small presentation to pitch to them. 

  9. 2. Post flyers/ links on/at the following:  • Libraries  • Organization website • If possible create a "volunteer" button to lead to an online form directly from the we site. The form an e set up to be sent to your email and the link to your organization's website can now be a recruitment tool for you and a marketing technique for the org. • Idealist.org • Craigslist.com • Volunteer recruitment sites (you can Google these)  • Local super markets  • Colleges • Be mindful of the upcoming requirements for a bachelors degree; graduate programs might be a better target • Churches  • Etc. 

  10. 3. Host a networking night: • Each current tutor and staff of the organization bring one or two people to network with the others, but also to be introduced to the great opportunity you are offering for them to be involved in the community through tutoring.

  11. 4. Recruit through your women tutors • Women have a wonderful way of encouraging others to get involved in a good cause. • Women may be able to recruit men easier then you can; men tend to respond to someone yet know, someone they already trust more than they do a stranger

  12. 5. Don't be afraid to make "the big ask" • We require a lot of time and energy from our tutors, which can sometimes scare a new potential tutor away.  • Please don't let this prevent you from making the "big ask"; don't scale down the requirements or try to bid to the potential tutor through what they have to offer.  • We ask a lot of our tutors because our learners deserve all of it and more. By keeping the requirements in tack and being true to the needs of your learner, you are emphasizing the importance of the volunteer position and the impact the work of the volunteer can have on the learner.  • The "big ask" is also important in maintaining the legitimacy of your program services and the organization.  Just think... The learners ask a lot from us and we rise to the occasion; let's not prevent our volunteers from having the opportunity to rise to the occasion to be an influential part of our process too! 

  13. 6. Make your face known in the community. • By getting out and sharing your story, you put a face with the request... This has a bigger impact than most people realize.  • Take learners with you to recruitment opportunities. No one tells their story quite as well as they do themselves! 

  14. ** Be excited, stay positive & ask for support at any point you need**Good Luck!!!
