Recruiting Volunteers by Using Facebook

Considering my post yesterday was about you can use Gather.com to recruit older NPR type folks, I figured I would follow up with a post about how to use Facebook to promote your volunteer opportunities to a younger crowd.

So here we go.
1. Create Personal Facebook account
2. Join your regional/city network
3. Create an event (on the left navigation). Make sure to pick which network to broadcast it to.
4. You can either use Facebook’s guest list feature, or put the 1-800-Volunteer.org URL address for the volunteer opportunity in the “Description” field to track folks who have signed up.

Very simple. You’ve just reached out to a portion of the 34 million users that use Facebook.
