Part 2.1: What Is a Self-Directed Volunteer Team?
A Self-Directed Volunteer Team™ is a multi-skilled group of volunteers who share responsibilities for addressing a challenge or opportunity in their community.
Through time, the team is empowered to take full responsibility for its own functioning and for results.
