3 Ways to Get Generation Z Involved with Your Nonprofit

Ways to Get Generation Z Involved with Your NonprofitInclude this young generation in your nonprofit’s marketing efforts and volunteering opportunities.  

Believe it or not, but your nonprofit doesn’t have to spend a fortune marketing your efforts to the younger generation. People who make up Generation Z are born between 1996 and 2010, and are more involved with activism and addressing issues in their community than most. They are passionate and tech-savvy. Yet, most nonprofits are not making the most of these two influences. To help drive your nonprofit forward by involving Gen Z, read on for some out-of-the-box tips.

  • Go beyond the traditional volunteer experience

Teens are always on the lookout for exciting volunteering experiences. They want to get involved in something they are passionate about, and it is a great way to develop life skills and discover hidden talents. Make sure your volunteering opportunities can offer this. Find work for them to do that benefits your organization but also teaches them about something new. Consider compensating them for their time through course credit, money, or lunches.

  • Build Generation Z mentorship programs

Building personal connections may be the most important element in retaining young people at your organization. Generation Z wants to be treated as equal. Make sure they have the ability to shadow employees, take notes during important meetings, and learn the ropes of what makes change.

  • Engage with them on social media

Technology is the way forward, there’s no denying it. Be sure that you engage with your online audience, including attracting generations of all sorts. Interact with comments and followers, and this young generation will be quick to notice that your organization is active and thriving.
