We understand you!
We know how difficult it can be, trying to stay true to the vision of the organization, while getting the logistics managed, the programs running and the costs controlled; not to mention the constant struggle of obtaining funds and keeping your organization technologically updated. In this day and age, when it is easier to find volunteers and interns, through different platforms, the challenge has shifted to now managing them, in the most favorable way.
Volunteers are an integral part of the growth of a non profit. So, with the kind of skills and influence they hold, it us imperative that you try your best in engaging them. So how can we manage volunteers?
1. FOCUS on volunteer recruitment
Start by understanding the needs of our organization. What do you need help with? Identify the skills and jobs that will prove most valuable to you. Re-affirm the vision of your organization with your employees and get everyone's consensus, on the work required. Try and categorize these into different tasks and share the opportunities in your network, website and social media channels, or contact us in order to make us post your opportunities in our websites.
2. Manage EPECTATIONS
Once you receive interests from potential volunteers or interns, take out time to have a casual conversation with them individually. Try to understand what they are looking from from the experience, and what else they may provide, to create a positive relationship. Clearly share what you exactly need from them and how their role contribute directly, towards positive outcomes for the cause. Set a time frame from your tasks and some checkpoints along the way, so you can ensure, you're headed in the right direction.
3. COMMUNICATE often
Appoint a volunteer / intern coordinator, who can keep in touch with volunteers and interns over calls, emails, emails and one to one sessions. Provide guidance when required and track progress on the tasks assigned. Motivate them with reminders of the impact they would create. If they are able to do a good job, recognize or reward volunteers or interns for their valuable work and appreciate their efforts from time to time.

4. Create a COMMUNITY
While it is true that many people volunteer or intern because they want to make a difference, some get involve because it connects them to other people. So provide your volunteers and interns an opportunity of being a part of the larger picture. Encourage them to join your events and campaigns. Give them opportunities to organize and host volunteers fellowships, under your supervision.

Our volunteers and interns guarantee not only security for the improvement of these services, but more importantly they can collaborate with new independent projects by the government (local and federal) at no cost.
Dipendra Kandel Initiative offers a solution for medical volunteers and interns, and hospitals in Nepal to fight different type of ills. The aims is to connect medical volunteers and interns to hospitals, who can cooperate together.
This system has been developed to address needs in Nepal. Many countries around the world, including Nepal, were under-prepared for such a pandemic COVID-19, thus there is a bigger need to increase capacities in hospitals and distribute some responsibilities to medical students, pharmacists, etc., for tasks such as registration of patients, call centers and many others.
Dipendra Kandel Initiative connects schools and colleges with in-person and virtual volunteers and interns across a huge range of jobs levels and sectors, through our free self-service portal.
Volunteers from a range of job types and industries have signed up to share their unique careers journeys, sector knowledge and enthusiasm about their roles with your students. Careers leaders select and invite people who best meet the needs of their students from across sectors and levels - making those key local connections.
From Career Insight Talks with one volunteer to larger scale Mock interview sessions with multiple schools and colleges can plan a variety of in-person and virtual encounters.
Do you need more volunteers for your sports club or organization?
Volunteer roles, more often than not, are filled by members. families and ex-members, as they are easy to get in touch with and they can see or enjoy the benefits of the club first hand.
While we encourage you to involve your club community, you may need to start looking outside of this circle for volunteers as your club continues to grow. But before recruiting new volunteers, you need to ask yourself key question;
Why do you want to recruit new volunteers?
What roles do you want them to do?
How much time will they need to spend volunteering?
Which skills do you need your volunteers to posses?
The opportunity to learn new skills, such First Aid, can often motivate people to get involved in the running of a club. So be upfront about the training opportunities your offer.

Partnerships with organizations
We currently work with universities and colleges to support their students into volunteer or internship roles that will make the most of their professional expertise. This creates a triple win: professional and personal development for students, a unique learning and development program with wider social impact for the universities and colleges.
When students take on trustee or skills-based volunteering or internship roles, they got to deploy their professional skills in the new contexts, broaden their perspective and develop entirely new skills. This provide rich, experiential learning. Students learn important leadership skills such a strategic development, effective decision making, governance, influencing and negotiating.
You can differentiates your university by putting your values into action. By offering volunteering opportunities with a high social impact, you can give students a way to connect with causes that they care about, and demonstrate commitment to with a better world while they are gaining their credits in their studies.
