Every year we have a volunteer training event in September. We review the safety stuff as well as the vision and values. It’s a chance for new volunteers to learn the basics and returning volunteers to be reminded about why we do what we do.
Volunteer Training Manuals can be boring to read. We decided it was important to work on making it look interesting so that it was easy to read. Here is the link to our Volunteer Training Book. You can download a copy and use it as a sample to create your own volunteer training book.
Yesterday I had a great day enjoying some time with my daughter at the American girl store. We booked a reservation to attend their Bistro. While we were sitting there, we noticed a box in the middle of the table. The box had small strips of paper with questions on them. The questions are meant to spark conversations while sitting at the table. The kids at the table enjoyed asking the rest of us questions and hearing our responses.
There are many conversation starter sets available for free on the internet. Pinterest is loaded with them. You can even put scripture verses in a small container and pull them out as you sit around the table as a family. What other ideas do you use to encourage discussion around the dinner table?
