Back to Basics – #7 Turning Volunteers into Brand Ambassadors

We’re in the final week of our Back to Basics series here at Volunteer U, and today, we’re talking about using volunteers for their full potential. Mainly by turning volunteers into brand ambassadors. Fanatical volunteers not only serve your team with excitement but eventually, they turn into megaphones for your brand. These volunteers share their experiences with friends, family, and anyone who will listen.


Over the years, cliques have developed a bad rap for bringing out the worst in people and making others feel small. While it’s true that in the playground, high-school, or work setting, a clique can be harmful; if appropriately handled, cliques can have some positive advantages for your volunteer team.

Virtual Team Building

As more teams span, not only cities but continents, leaders realize the importance of team synergy. With people working from home, and projects being pieced together from locations all over the world, there has never been a greater need for virtual relationship building.

Why Community Matters

With more people working from home and practicing social distancing, a lot of attention has been given to our need to connect. Humans are social creatures. We crave meaningful interactions. And it’s not a matter of personal preference or whether you are an introvert or extrovert. There is a distinction between loneliness and solitude. We all need significant connections. Why does a community matter?
