This is an exciting time for our co-op, as we experience a growth spurt. It’s also a challenging time, as staff decides how best to handle this new growth. One of the effects of this growth is that current volunteers are finding that the shift they usually sign up for is already filled, while hopeful volunteers are waiting patiently for a chance to go through orientation.
Here are the changes that we’ve made that will affect you as a volunteer. Some are temporary, intended to slow down the influx of volunteers for a short period of time. Other changes are aimed at streamlining and expanding the role of volunteers in our day-to-day operations.
