The Training Designs feature of e-Volunteerism is based on the recognition that orientation, induction, and training are critical to the success of each volunteer and to the entire volunteer involvement effort. Great training starts volunteers on the path to positive service experience and helps provide the greatest benefit to the organization, too. In this issue, new Training Designs Editor Karin Davis begins her tenure with an article on how basic adult learning principles can enhance volunteer training. You don’t have to be an expert in adult development to understand and apply these principles, but knowing them will make you a more effective trainer.
