It sounds like some kind of landing page for volunteering would be
great, as well as improving the team pages for volunteering.

Here's what I can dig up for our general volunteering pages:
https://www.libreoffice.org/get-involved/  (too much text!)

Here are our current QA landing/volunteer pages:

If someone ends up on the front page of our wiki, there's no obvious
"Get Involved" button:

The Feedback page (also mentioned at our last QA meeting) should point
somewhere -- either to the QA volunteering page or the general
volunteering page.

To promote the community aspect, it would be great to have a set of
videos somewhere that introduced the members of our community -- "Hi,
my name is Joel, and I'm a member of the QA Team"... "Hi, my name is
Markus, and I hack on LibreOffice"...etc. A little multimedia can make
our site look a lot more dynamic.

For example, let's look at Mozilla's sexy get-involved page for volunteers:

Another thought: We should have some kind of consistent branding that
we can use across all of our pages targeted at (new) volunteers.
