Recruitment Resources

The year-round recruitment efforts made by volunteers are the driving force behind Global Brigades. Because of you, we are able to make a sustainable impact in our partner communities. Below, you’ll find tips for getting started with recruitment, helpful resources for kick-starting your efforts, and a comprehensive guide to review with your Leadership team.

Set a Recruitment Goal

At the start of the brigade planning process, it is important that each chapter understands the volunteer recruitment goal that they must reach. These volunteer recruitment goals are set strategically in collaboration with in-country GB staff and when met, they ensure that brigades have adequate participation and funding to run successfully and support the sustainability of these projects on a year-round basis.

Importantly, the number of volunteers you are able to recruit as a Chapter directly correlates to the Donation Goal of each volunteer going on the brigade. This means that the more volunteers you and your chapter members recruit, the lower the Donation Goal for each volunteer is and the more impact you are able to make! In addition to lowering the Donation Goal of all volunteers going on the brigade, there are specific scholarships available for Chapter Presidents based on volunteer numbers.

Please visit the Fundraising Tools section to view the Volunteer Recruitment Numbers and associated Donation Goals for each program, country, as well as available scholarships.

Download & Customize Marketing Resources

To support you in your recruitment efforts, we have created various customizable marketing resources (found below). Each program (by country) has a handout, flyer, and informational session PowerPoint to utilize. You can also download general Global Brigades resources and logos. Be sure to abide by all branding guidelines when using Global Brigades branded materials.

Recruit for Your Brigade

Recruiting for your brigade is a huge job! It requires teamwork, organization, planning, and accountability. Use Global Brigade’s Volunteer Recruitment Guide for best practices, tips, and recruitment strategies your Chapter can use.

 

Sign-up for Your Brigade

MyBrigades is Global Brigades’ fundraising platform and volunteer management tool for chapter leaders and staff. It is important that any and all volunteers you recruit who are planning to go on brigade are successfully registered through your Chapter’s specific Brigade Page. Your Global Brigades Program Associate will create your specific Brigade Page and send the link to the Chapter Leader/President to circulate. Feel free to reference this GB Brigade Pages and MyBrigades Tutorial for step-by-step instructions on how to sign up, find your brigade page,  join your brigade, navigate your MyBrigades account, and make donations.

As with everything in our organization, we highly value leader and volunteer feedback. If you have any pieces of feedback or suggestions for additional resources that you have found useful on your campus we want to hear from you!
