Find volunteers Edit
Volunteers are one of the most important resources for running programs. Many organizations and program leaders have said that it is difficult to find enough volunteers to support projects and programs. In this section program leaders and educators who are new to Wikimedia will find ideas on how to find and work with volunteers who want to support education both online and offline.
Remember, if you want volunteers to consistently support your program, you need to ensure that they all feel part of the team. You must be prepared to share the sense of ownership and the sense of achievement of the program. The sooner you involve them in the development of the program the more likely they are to stick with the program to the end. And don't forget to involve them in the evaluation, if possible with a social event celebrating a successful conclusion.
