Volunteer Recruitment Plan
Impact statement
This project will save us $7,716 , allowing us to offer long-term residencies to 75 students!

Project Details

What We Need
  • A volunteer recruitment strategy that outlines: potential volunteer market, timeline, strategies for outreach, and plan for volunteer retainment.
Additional Details

We're growing and need to get serious about a volunteer program and volunteer management. Help!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an amazing place to volunteer, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have ideas about what we'll need in our new space, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

GlassRoots is moving to a new space and will need a volunteer program -- volunteers to act as gallery docents, gift shop assistants, reception. We don't even know where to start!

About The Org

Our Mission

The mission of GlassRoots is to ignite and build the creative and economic vitality of greater Newark, with a focus on under-served youth and young adults, through the transformative power of the glass art experience.

What We Do

Since its founding in 2001, GlassRoots has engaged tens of thousands Greater Newark-area youth with its services, including its core Youth Entrepreneurship programs, student field trips and "art-for-art's sake" classes for the public.

We harness the fire and danger of glassmaking to engage area youth. Our students develop patience, teamwork, creative problem-solving, plus the discipline and resilience they need to safely work with 2200 degree fire and molten glass. They gain hands-on experience in chemistry, physics, and math. They become young entrepreneurs as they develop and market their products.
They join a vibrant community in which all learn from each other. Our young artists grow stronger each time they forge glass, and experience the power of their own creativity. Read more at See us in action at
