Is there such a thing as "volunteer burnout" and if so, how do I recognize it my organization?  
Volunteer burnout is characterized by a volunteer’s persistent lack of enthusiasm and satisfaction with his/her volunteer position. Basically, the volunteer may be distracted, overwhelmed, lose perspective, appear dogmatic, cynical or intolerant, and/or lack interest in the organization. The symptoms of volunteer burnout are very similar to “personal burnout” or what paid employees experience when they feel overwhelmed with their responsibilities at work. If you seem to be having an unusually large turnover of volunteers (not to include those who leave an organization due to relocations), perhaps you have a volunteer burnout situation that needs to be addressed.
