How important is it to appropriately match volunteer talents and interests to community needs?  
Assigning volunteers to positions that match their skills and interest is very important. There are many reasons why individuals volunteer. They may want to fill a void in their lives or perhaps they just want to support their community. In any case, most volunteers will not remain volunteers if they don’t get some kind of satisfaction out of their work. Paid employees often have to perform tasks that they don’t want to do, but your volunteers are not getting paid. While professional volunteers also recognize the need to do some of the less “glamorous” work at times, it is in a leader’s best interest to try to match a volunteer’s skills and interest to the right volunteer position in order to keep them coming back. Additionally, it is important for a volunteer’s roles and responsibilities to be clearly defined. Volunteers should also be evaluated for their performance and recognized for their efforts.
