Asha Chicago collaborated with 7 Booth MBA students and implemented their recommendations. Some of the recommendations looked good on paper but were harder to implement.
Recruitment what worked/works
- element of luck: people just reach out since they are involved in college or were involved previously
- starting with warm intro - go to existing volunteers and ask for family or friends since Indian community have good network
- corporate outreach - can involve the companies' HR and try to spread the word
- recent grads since many of them are highly motivated and involved in student orgs in colleges
- reach out to folks who come from India on a dependent visas (mainly women in early 20s or 30s who have a degree from India)
Retention (retention problem could arise due to org's lack of interest due to lack of leadership or focus)
- completely flatening structure helped
- respond within 24 hr of a volunteer contacting the chapter with offer to help
- and first interaction is done in person and instead of explaining what Asha does look for what they are interested in
- not get stuck into position and instead have a task list which is basically a laundry list of things that need to be done in the spreadsheet.
Questions asked by other Asha chapter leaders/coordinators
- how to get short term volunteers?
- how to rotate volunteers who get burned out?
- how to make sure folks attend the meetings?
- how to setup a mentorship project and how to setup short term volunteers?
- how to say that folks need to be committed for a year?
- there is no written agreement but just outline the expectations
- Is there a process in place for stewardship role???Any training material??
