About the Service
In order to evaluate various volunteer dynamics within your organization, VPA-UNO has constructed a survey that you, the volunteer coordinator, will distribute to your volunteers. This survey is important because it will allow us to better understand your volunteers’ strengths, growth areas, issues, feelings, and reactions. You can then use this information to think and act strategically about your volunteer program.
VPA-UNO representatives spend a number of hours meeting with you, the volunteer coordinator, developing the survey, analyzing and interpreting survey results, and delivering results to you. VPA-UNO provides this consultation service free of charge; however, if it were provided at regular market price, you might pay as much as $10,000 for just the survey alone. In addition to survey development, VPA-UNO offers you the benefit of developing and interpreting open-ended survey questions, face-to-face consultations about the results of the survey, and providing you with guidance on moving forward with the results to improve your volunteer program.
Sample Survey Questions
As a volunteer coordinator that has time constraints, you may be worried about adding another item to your to-do list, not to mention something that you may not know much about. We have included sample items from our survey to the website to give you an idea of the types of questions that will be asked of your volunteers about your organization should you choose to undergo the VPA process. Some sample questions include:
The items are rated in terms of how much the volunteer agrees with each statement.
