Offer discounts more often and perhaps warn volunteers on possible safety issues. A couple of the volunteers had their purses stolen at the beach because they were obviously carrying expensive things (I.E. Ipods, expensive purses, etc) so a tutorial explaining that volunteers should not bring their valuables into view would have been helpful.

WiFi in the house was not all day. It was from 5pm-7am. Wasn't good because my mom tried to contact me a few times and they turned out to be very important missed calls.
