What to do and not to do during the Volunteer Fair: What worked and did not work last year :) Nobody really cared about passive booths with few flyers. On the contrary, the most successful were the ones who showed right there, at the fair, what volunteers can do in their organization. We could bring that to perfection this year, right? Bring something to people that they will come across also in your organization. If you want them to play with children, bring puzzles; if you want people to teach children, do some interesting experiments with them. Let them try it all out :) Do you think it is impossible? It is not. Contact us and we will come up with something :)
