Rachael Chong: All Volunteers Are Not Created Equal

The article speaks on volunteering, while for some it may be fulfiling to undertake certain roles and if they do out of personal choice. However, if an organisation does not use the knowledge and skills of its volunteers in an optimal way it is a waste of human resources. The question being do the organisations you volunteer for really effectively make use of you unique knowledge and skils? Does this mean when we do volunteer we only work in roles that we are qualified to do, obviously not. If you do volunteer, you may want to consider what you do and if you could better serve the organisation, its clients and the wider community more effectively..

However, if you don’t volunteer, how do you give back to yuor community.
