Featured Article: The New, New Breed of Volunteer is Even Newer
The New, New Breed of Volunteer is Even Newer
Five years ago this fall we released the first edition of The New Breed, claiming that the 21st century volunteer is so different from the last century volunteer that it takes a different style of leadership for volunteer involvement. And in just five years the world of volunteer leadership has changed exponentially, calling for an even greater up-to-date leadership.
To be ahead of these changes, we have just released the second edition of The New Breed.
What is next? Real-time hologram projections of my board members at our board meetings?
Jonathan, co author of The New Breed writes,
I almost hesitate to write about technology, in fear that by the time it goes to print it will already be out of date. You'd be amazed if you saw how much we had to already totally revamp the technology chapter for the second edition of the book. So much has changed in just 5 years.
So how do advances in technology affect the world of volunteerism?
I guess that's like asking, "How did the invention of the plane change world travel?"
But technology is only one aspect of how the world of volunteer has changed in just five years.
The first edition isn't that OLD... it's just that we quoted so many studies in that book that we wanted to keep it current. The publisher agreed, so we released a new edition that has the following changes:

Susan Ellis writes about the New Breed
Jonathan and Tom McKee's book, The New Breed, is an enthusiastic, thoughtful, and contemporary look at volunteering as it is evolving in this new century. There's no question that organizations must utilize up-to-date management techniques to attract and retain the wide range of people who want to serve their cause. In a practical and often humorous way, the authors introduce real-life challenges in volunteer engagement and give wonderful suggestions for everything from recruiting to using computer technology for communication. They aim to inspire the leader of volunteers and they succeed.

The 21st century volunteer culture is very different because of tectonic shifts that have changed volunteer leadership. These shifts have impacted the volunteer organization; therefore, how we recruit and lead the New Breed of volunteer is a whole new game. The tectonic shifts include the following:
