Volunteering for Tri Sigma
Tri Sigma’s philosophy about volunteers is simple. The teamwork of staff and volunteers is encouraged so members will have the best experience possible. Volunteers contribute unique talents, skills, and knowledge to the membership by providing personalized attention to members, enabling the staff to concentrate on the work they are trained in, and educating the membership about the organization.
To support and enhance the volunteer experience, The Volunteer Engagement Plan was created by a team of current and past volunteers. The plan has four focus areas:
- Recruitment and Placement – addresses the challenges of providing opportunities for recent graduates, enhancing communication with volunteers, better defining volunteer titles, and offering a mentoring program to name a few.
- Training and Development – offers topical webinars, in-person meetings that combine hard and soft skills while focusing on building relationships and creating interactive manuals, and a volunteer training plan that provides resources to cover all life cycles of the volunteer experience.
- Evaluation and Enrichment – introduces the opportunity for volunteers to offer feedback on their experience, builds a path to reach volunteer goals, and creates space for the staff counterpart, and volunteer to share feedback on performance
- Recognition – extends the celebration of volunteers from triennial years of service recognition to more frequent appreciation because Tri Sigma wouldn’t be successful without the work of volunteers.
Sigma Sigma Sigma would not be the organization it is today without the time and talent of our volunteers. This page will highlight all the wonderful opportunities to leave your legacy by volunteering for Tri Sigma.
