Team or chapter newsletters are a great way to communicate with your team and make sure that everyone feels informed and included in the team. One great example of a team newsletter is the wonderful newsletter that the Western Pennsylvania Team (WPA) has been publishing, full of current events and news about the team's students, families, and volunteers. The volunteers share that many volunteers, host families, and students contribute to every issue, which is apparent in every fantastic article and story.
The WPA team has been using the content creation tool Canva, but of course you can use any program that you'd like!
For the 2021 AFS Volunteer Summit with the theme of "Leading Together," WPA volunteer Mike Peschong created the images below as part of the Volunteer Engagement Advisory Group's presentation. You can view the whole presentation here.
In the meantime, you can check out Mike's guide to creating a monthly newsletter below, with the images available as a downloadable pdf here. You can view an example in the January 2022 newsletter, available to view here. Accessible descriptions of the images are further down the article.
