Using a pin that you can plant and turn into a flower as a recruiting tool to "grow" our reading mentor program has been effective. We speak at meetings of businesses, chamber of commerce, etc. and ask the participants to "Be a mentor, plant a seed" and then we give them buttons they can literally plant. Seeing the flower from the button they plant constantly reminds them of our program and provides a conversation piece for them to tell others about being a mentor.
