  • Description:
    In every community, there are organizations and volunteers interested in and working in a wide variety of areas, and the demand for them is continually growing. With less discretionary time, volunteers have many more choices for their time and efforts.Agencies competing for these resources can have the advantage if they are willing to review and tailor their programs accordingly. Meaningful training for the volunteer, an emphasis on collaboration, and a shift from direct service to advocacy will be as important as organizational flexibility and efficiency.The 266 Junior Leagues in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Great Britain have long worked toward these goals for their 163,000 members. The Leagues collaborate on local, State, national, and international levels to initiate model service programs, pursue public policy goals, and participate in broadbased volunteer endeavors. They are achieving significant change in legislative and government policy and are formulating new approaches to services for children and families, for women, and for the aged.
