Volunteer Resources


This Resource Pack is for you, it provides role descriptions, ideas on how to recruit and where to recruit, as well as, how to reward and retain volunteers. As Volunteer Coordinator you will look at a strategy of how to implement these resources. If the resources are used with a clear and targeted approach, there is no reason that your campaign will not be successful.

Take a look at the Toolkit for Volunteer Coordinators from the Welsh sports sector Sport Wales - Club Solutions and WCVA (Wales Council for Voluntary Action).

A free useful e-learning module for a club Volunteer Coordinator 'Introduction to Volunteering in Sport: E-Learning module' (Sport Wales - Club Solutions).

Why Volunteer?

There're loads of benefits to doing something for your local athletics/running club. You learn new skills, meet new people, and help your career.

Gain Skills

Volunteering demonstrates transferable skills. Having volunteering on your CV will help you to stand out from the crowd. By volunteering your time to others you can become a skilled person - someone that employers, universities and colleges want.
