By: AFP SE WI Administrator
Date: January 10, 2017

This low number of volunteers is compounded by the unfortunate reality that one-third of all volunteers who volunteer in one year do not continue to volunteer in the following year. Far too many organizations focus on recruiting new volunteers to meet their needs when the solution could simply be in doing a better job of retaining existing volunteers.
