Volunteers Resources

Volunteers are a valuable resource for any school tuckshop. They aid in increasing both the efficiency and volume of orders completed. They also allow for increased interaction and feedback from the wider school community.

A successful volunteer program requires a lot of behind-the-scenes work. And maintaining the appropriate supporting documents is a whole job in itself.

This section includes resources that can provide support for your tuckshop goals, recruiting, training and retaining a volunteer workforce, and information to help you engage with members of your school community from diverse backgrounds.
