This study examines the NERDS organization's increased demand for services and the need to improve volunteer engagement through selection, onboarding, and training processes. Surveys and interviews with volunteers provide the basis for an action plan to hire a part-time volunteer manager, establish a university partnership, implement a selection process, and develop a mentor program. The plan includes timelines, goals, and outcomes to improve recruitment and retention of college student volunteers. The study concludes that implementing the plan will enhance volunteer management efficiency, staff-volunteer relationships, and organizational culture and climate while providing valuable skills and experiences for college student volunteers.
