Assign staff to be orientation leaders, then have them schedule orientation for new staff and volunteers. Training should include background of the nonprofit, the structure of the nonprofit, how the facilities are set up, and the procedures that staff and volunteers must use. During the orientation, introduce the staff and volunteers to the other staff and show them around the facility. Training should be specific to the position that they will hold, and geared to the person’s skill levels.
Training should be evaluated periodically to make sure that their duties are being done properly. Additional classes such as public speaking, conflict resolution, or CPR may be included
