Writing The Perfect, Targeted Volunteer Opportunity

Keep It Light, Brief & Straightforward

A well-written volunteer opportunity title and description let volunteers know exactly what’s expected of them. Use short, succinct sentences to address the responsibilities of the role and clearly outline expectations. Avoid lengthy paragraphs with needlessly professional jargon, and limit your opportunity to 100 words or less.

Catchy headlines go a long way. For example, “Bring your friends”, “Mentor a child in your community,” or “Let’s build together” all sound better and more creative than “Volunteers needed!”.
