Volunteering And Being Part Of A Team

Volunteering And Being Part Of A Team

Not for profit charities all have one thing in common. Whilst they differ on what cause they are affiliated with, what size they run at, their aspirations and goals, there is one absolute certainty; volunteers.

It is unquestionable that volunteers are what makes NFP's tick. Their importance is priceless and all non-profits need them. In fact, we here at Furever Farm prefer to call volunteers "team members". Why? We feel the term volunteer is too underrated. It is a worthwhile but exceptionally common phrase. It holds its merits, there is only one meaning from it but it is sterile. There is no reference to inclusion in the term, no warmth if you will. It describes oneself as much as a job title or career. It doesn't describe the person and their value. Here we feel that one is part of a big valuable team and all holds individual importance and worth. To volunteer at Furever Farm is to be part of the actual institution. Our team members are every bit as important as a paid staff member in a business.
