A simple notion that can mean profound change: sometimes volunteers do better with more on their plate.

If you put more “job” into the “job description” of your student leaders, would they:

  • rise to the challenge?
  • feel more satisfied?
  • feel a bigger sense of ownership?
  • be less likely to get burned out?
  • grow more?

The answer to these isn’t always yes, but it’s often yes.

While you’d need to go about any commitment-adding gingerly if you’re mid-stream (although some leaders might jump at the chance), this may be a chance to upgrade for the next round of student leadership. Where could more turn out to be more?
