WORKSHOPS: Volunteer Management with a Pandemic Lens
There is no denying that volunteers and volunteerism form the backbone of many communities. Our societies are better off because of their contributions.
While the value and impact of volunteerism has not changed, the way we serve our communities and manage volunteers during the pandemic (and beyond) certainly has. Community needs have shifted and policies and procedures must adapt.
This two-part workshop, offered in partnership with Volunteer BC, will focus on two key aspects of volunteer management: (1) planning a volunteer program and (2) volunteer recruitment and retention.
In these sessions, the pandemic will act as a lens, providing background and context. We’ll discuss how to design volunteer programs that respond to community needs in times of crisis, and how we can recruit and retain volunteers while keeping health and safety a priority.
We are in a unique position to not only highlight the importance of volunteers during the pandemic, but also to explore how service delivery has changed, and what that means for volunteer engagement.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is limited to 35 participants.
