If you’re a yearbook advisor, you know firsthand that organizing a team of student volunteers can feel like trying to herd cats. Your students’ dedication, experience levels, effort, and skills will vary wildly. While new developments in yearbook software can greatly assist with the creation and production of your book, managing the human element of your team is still critical to the success of your project.
At Entourage Yearbooks, we have years of experience helping advisors with this process. During our yearly High School Advisors’ Conference, we share the latest yearbook techniques, technologies, and trends with advisors from all over the country. During this year’s conference, members of our Advisors’ Council – a group comprised of advisors that have volunteered to help lead the transformation of the yearbook industry for the benefit of schools and their communities – shared some approaches to organizing a yearbook team that worked best for them.
