Abstract:  How do we find volunteers, how do we match them up with the tasks for which they are most suited, and how do we keep them happy? The author presents useful guidelines and detailed information for approaching these questions. He suggests questions to be asked at the initial interview, explains what should be covered in orientation and training, and looks at how to handle problems. This is a competent guide to the topic, although it is addressed more to 'service' groups than to organizations working for change.
