We don't do a "Volunteer Open House" but we do have a volunteer social every other month. Current volunteers are encouraged to bring a potential volunteer as a guest. We've gotten several volunteers this way.
I haven't offered a "volunteer open house" , but I do speak with department leaders periodically about the volunteer services and needs within our organization. We have been very successful in attracting new volunteers by way of our hospital leaders spreading the word about how volunteer services is such a huge benefit to the hospital.
I haven’t done an open house per say but I’ve hosted volunteer teas just to bring potential volunteers in, show them around, tell them about our program, etc. ours was very informal we just put out flyers and personal invitations I think I ran something in the local paper. We had program information available and current volunteers there to share.
Has anyone held a volunteer open house at their hospital to receive applications and meet potential volunteers? If so, what was your process and was it successful?
