Successful practices for onboarding volunteers?

I find a lot of webpages and forms that new volunteers have to fill out to be pretty intimidating. I understand that there is some filtering that libraries need to do, and I also understand that there is a fair amount of information that needs to be gathered. However, I’m wondering if others can point me to any examples of intake forms/welcome screens that do the following:

  • Express gratitude for volunteers time
  • Lead the volunteer to believe that the experience will be fun a lot of the time
  • Clearly indicate the full onboarding process, while only asking a few questions to get started
