Why Volunteer?

I'm old-school when it comes to engaging volunteers.

In my view, a volunteer is drawn to an opportunity because the organization, or area of concern, "speaks" to the volunteer. They become filled with a "gotta-do-something" spirit.

So this volunteer request at left me nonplussed ...


Vancouver Cooperative Radio, CFRO, 102.7FM is a non-commercial, co-operatively-owned, listener-supported, community radio station. Located in the heart of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Co-op Radio is a voice for the voiceless that strives to provide a space for under-represented and marginalized communities. Co-op Radio aims to increase community participation by encouraging examination of the social and political concerns of the geographic and cultural communities of BC.

Vancouver Co-op Radio is looking for an individual with an interest in doing janitorial work on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Some of the duties include: emptying all garbage and recycling bins, tidying kitchen area, cleaning bathroom, and additional tidying/cleaning as necessary.

If you have "an interest in doing janitorial work" as a volunteer, give 'em a call. Better yet, donate a mop and send them a copy of Dave Pollard's blog post on the Fear of Volunteering.
