an8aThrough our Volunteer Program, we currently support approximately 100 Guatemalan organizations. Our experience shows that volunteers can be a large help to these organizations when they are managed seriously, with planning, effectiveness, and efficiency. In order to optimize and systemize our 15 years of work in the field of reception and administration of volunteers, we have created a complete manual of BEST PRACTICES IN VOLUNTEER MANAGEMENTa useful and indispensable resource for organizations, both Guatemalan and foreign, that want to explore the world of volunteering. Said manual can be consulted and reproduced if EntreMundos (the author and copyright holder of the manual) is credited and the following information sections are included:
a)   Establishment of volunteer positions;
b)   Analysis of risks and creation of policies;
c)   Recruitment, marketing, and communication stage;
d)   Selection of potential volunteers;
e)   Training and supervision of volunteers;
f)   Motivation and recognition of volunteers;
g)   Response to and mitigation of incidents; resolution of problems;
h)   Maintain contact with volunteers.
