Excerpted from "Prepare
We do not want to be Pollyannas! Although we know the benefits of working with
children as volunteers, we recognize that there are always concerns among administrators
and staff members to whom this may be a new concept. It is best to address these
worries, try to find solutions wherever possible and weigh the pros and cons
of the seemingly unsolvable ones. But at least clear the air. Make it comfortable
for doubters to state their feelings. Let them know that others have had similar
anxieties in establishing the groundwork for children volunteering in their agencies.
