SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VolunteerMatch, the Web's largest volunteer engagement network, announced today that its book, Volunteer Engagement 2.0: Ideas and Insights Changing the World will be published on May 26, 2015, and is available to pre-order today.
Each chapter of Volunteer Engagement 2.0: Ideas and Insights Changing the World is authored by a top thought leader in the field of volunteer engagement, bringing various, expert perspectives to one publication. Readers can expect to become familiar with new tools and trends, learn to quantify and evaluate their volunteer programs, recruit corporate partners, and more.
Full of both actionable steps and broad strategy discussions, the book explores a wide range of topics on the current and future states of volunteer engagement. Contributors include experts from organizations such as DoSomething.org, NTEN, Realized Worth, LinkedIn and the Corporation for National Community Service.
"The volunteer engagement field is filled with textbooks showing how to model our programs on those of others," says Robert Rosenthal, editor of Volunteer Engagement 2.0: Ideas and Insights Changing the World. "In contrast, the purpose of this publication is to help us think differently about what's possible."
Greg Baldwin, president of VolunteerMatch echoes, "This isn't a book about what volunteering has been. It's about what it can become."
