12 Tips to Avoid Volunteers easy to Drop


In Cambodia context, the situation of easy to give up and slow down of commitment in working or volunteering from youth is so high. It is not good for youth to give up or quit working or volunteering early. To avoid these situation especially for young leaders when working in project or program with volunteers or youth, I have a few tips to share:

I. Understand what you are doing and why important

Make sure you understand what you are doing and why it is important to do that. Figure more evidences and data to proof too.

II. Understand what kinds of people fit to these kinds of jobs

III. Setting up criteria in choosing people

(For example: have enough time, commitment, willing to learn, experience, knowledge, love reading, respect others and so on)

IV. Prepare agreement

Make sure both parties agree and understand the situation they are applying and requirements.

V. Do not believe 100% on what they write and said

Two reasons:

  • Sometimes people do not have abilities to do what they said (Some situation is hard to control. For example: sick, accident, broken heart, pressure from family …)
  • They tell a lie.

(Some people choose to tell a lie to pass or being selected, because they really want to pass. Some people expect something from your team and project/program they are applying.)

VI. Investigate and observes their action

Check their profile, also can tell the fact and stories

VII. Reserved and risk management

  • Do not expect too much on the plan is 100% go smooth
  • A project always have risk, just small or big
  • To avoid or any uncertain situation as well as changing

VIII. Thinking of strategies

A good project/program always has strategies. Think on how make your project grow fast and sustainable

IX. Always check and assessment

Some parts would go fast, but some parts would go slowly. To make sure it go well, it needs to grow together and all important parts no errors.

X. Visible outcome

Make sure your project/program has visible outcome. Most of people is happy and productive when see visible rather than invisible especially where in low educated society.

XI. Motivation and recognition

Working without pay in Cambodia context is hard while many people still not understand the important of public services/goods and how it contribute to their living standard and living environment and some of them also consider this job is government too, so people who volunteer normally get many pressures from peers, family and people around which lead them to be easily to give up. In this case, motivation is very important and need to put in practice in order to make them feel good and continue mission. The great achievement also need to be recognized for promoting good cause so that many people can live peacefully.

XII. Capacity building

Not only volunteer work, capacity building is a good method to make anyone who work to have more capacity to get things done easily and fast so that the contribution is also grow fast and impact to many people.
