Working with Volunteer Organizations

The active membership of volunteer organizations is constantly changing, so they think and act like perpetual teenagers: Always learning what others take for granted, and always having to be told the same thing over and over again.

When working with a volunteer organization, don't assume that they know what they are doing. Do not be afraid to remind them of what you think they should know. Be patient and lend them a teaching hand when you can. Even if you've already taught them something 10 times. Chances are that you're teaching the 11th person.
