When people sign up to volunteer in our Kids Rooms, we want to equip them with all the info they need to get started, and do their job well. It can be a little overwhelming for a new volunteer to try to remember everything, so we created some booklets for each room that give them the basics to get started.
Every year we have a volunteer training event in September. We review the safety stuff as well as the vision and values. It’s a chance for new volunteers to learn the basics and returning volunteers to be reminded about why we do what we do. At this event we review our Volunteer Training Book. This book outlines our safety policies as well as the need to know info for our Kids Volunteers.
Kids Kount Publishing has created some videos to help train Kids Ministry Staff & Volunteers. Each video is 3 minutes or less, and is available online for free. No subscription, so signing up…just click on the video & press play! Here are some of the topics they cover:
