Flexibility - Before committing to any plan wholeheartedly, be sure to leave room for uncertainty and unpredictability. Information at times can be sparse, and situations on the ground change rapidly. The volunteer shift that was available the day before might not be a priority or even necessary 24 hours later. Being a good volunteer means being flexible, finding ways to stay engaged, and committing to fill in any service gaps. Being observant, identifying needs and remaining flexible will not only make you a more efficient and effective volunteer, it will also keep your morale boosted.
