"Buttering up" is also a good tactic, Michelle. YM use the term Champion; it does have a nice ring to it! Do the student team have anyone in mind? Positive persuasion is a powerful tool. Wishing you well.Report comment
Hi Arlene, thank you for the tips. I have used the term 'champion' in the document that I have composed. I have a few individuals that I have already spoken to, but there needs to be a 'critical mass' to get them on board. I feel tentatively confident..Report comment
Confident is good, Michelle! Have the students had input into the document? How about inviting prospective champions to a YM session to meet & chat with your Team? (they'll either be scared off but more likely if they are the right "fit" will be clamouring to get involved!) There are so many good things to emanate from working with a YM student group. It is a win/win. Wishing the Team well.Report comment
Nice advice from Arlene here! And yes good luck attracted the right people Michelle. Add the 'harness volunteer power' Activity under 'Be Strategic' to earn a big bucket of points https://yourmove.org.au/activities/Report comment
