VOC announces their Stepping Up Stewardship Toolkit: a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive set of resources specifically designed to help other groups and organizations start or expand their volunteer programs.
Developed in response to the ever-growing challenges associated with effectively caring for our outdoor places, VOC's Toolkit offers free guides on subjects ranging from selecting a good volunteer project to making volunteers feel valued.
Each guide is accompanied by supplemental materials providing VOC's templates, checklists, and other how-tos that further enhance the ability to easily put volunteers to work on public lands. The toolkit materials may also be supplemented with technical skills training through the Outdoor Stewardship Institute along with customized VOC training and consulting assistance.
Visit the VOC website and download and use the materials provided.

Stefis Demetropoulos of the Florida Forest Service tells the story of how one volunteer can make a difference.
Use this library of resources, articles, and trainings to create an army of effective trail stewards.
The Trail Challenge is a “call to action” for all of us to work together to achieve a sustainable trail system by increasing our collective capacity to care for trails and by increasing on-the-ground results through shared stewardship of trails.
Organizations working together can tackle problems and issues that are too large for single organizations to handle.
