      Quiz Question 4's answers are a bit confusing, but the course is informative in general

      Volunteer roles should be designed and negotiated around the needs and interests of the volunteer

      Select one:

      Yes, Volunteer roles should be designed and negotiated around the needs and interests of volunteers.

      It can vary depending on the changing needs at any specific time of the organisation and its wider stakeholders

      No, Volunteer roles should be designed and negotiated around the needs and interests of volunteer involving organisations and its wider stakeholders.

      I thought the correct answer would be, "Yes, Volunteer roles should be designed and negotiated around the needs and interests of volunteer involving organisations and its wider stakeholders."?
