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?
