What is a site leader?
Site leaders act as the liaison between The Detroit Partnership and the volunteers. Each site leader is in charge of 10-15 volunteers on DP Day (each student organization is required to have one site leader per every 10-15 volunteers).
What does a site leader do?
Prior to DP Day:
Site leaders must attend one of the two offered orientation dates:
- Thursday, March 14 from 8:00-9:30 PM
- Friday, March 15 from 8:00-9:30 PM
Additionally, site leaders should recruit friends and classmates to register as volunteers.
On DP Day (March 23, 2013)
Site leaders are responsible for keeping his/her volunteers aware, active, and motivated throughout the day. It is recommended that site leaders meet up and lead discussions with their volunteers a few days before DP Day for team-bonding and to distribute important information to his/her volunteers. Site leaders are an integral part of what makes DP Day run effectively.
How do my group members register to volunteer?
