Series Snapshot / Toni Jackson: Community Service & Volunteerism

Toni Jackson

When asked about her personal mission, Toni Jackson replied it includes “empathizing, embracing, enhancing, educating and empowering . . . My approach to volunteerism is the same as my approach to a paid position.  I give it my all!”.  

My work ethic comes from my parents, who were inspired by the words of Martin Luther King, Jr: “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. . . . You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Your Outcomes Well

Better outcomes through Best Practices (Non-profit leaders)

There are 4 Things That Thriving Non-profits Do Really Well Jackson cited and explained, namely:

  1. They are proactive, not just reactive
  2. They maintain a steadfast Mission focus
  3. They get good people to work for them
  4. They properly train their staff

Leading volunteers

“People are going to give their time, their money, and their space to organizations and causes that they are genuinely passionate about. 

If you understand this fact, tap the acknowledged passions of volunteers, and state clearly position expectations, you’ll be an effective Volunteer Leader.  You’ll be able to, I feel, harvest a Win-Win that helps your Non-profit achieve it’s Mission – and allow your Volunteers to eagerly donate their time.”
