As volunteerism moves and changes with the issues and challenges of our time, it has become vitally important for volunteer program administrators to be able to capture and describe what the presence of volunteers means to those served and how volunteers contribute to organized mission and goals. This publication presents a basic, practical approach to beginning a process of volunteer outcome and impact evaluation. Its purpose is to provide practitioners with the tools, understand and confidence to evaluate programs and volunteers on the difference they made in people’s lives and in the greater community.
