Volunteer Engagement Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic: A Webinar Presented by VQ Volunteer Strategies

The recent outbreak of Coronavirus and the associated response has changed our way of life… including how we think about and engage volunteers.

Join Beth Steinhorn, President of VQ Volunteer Strategies, for a discussion on how some organizations have shifted their engagement practices to respond to the pandemic and provide a list of volunteer engagement considerations. Come together with fellow engagement leaders for support as we move through this together. Registrants will receive a template for a Volunteer Engagement Response Plan for COVID-19. Presented in partnership with Sterling Volunteers.

AL!VE Academy Partner Webinar: Finding the right questions to get the right answers for recruiting volunteers! Presented by VSys One

Volunteer leadership is a challenging and rewarding career field. Until you are in the role, you cannot completely comprehend what it is, and your role continually changes. Volunteer leaders are both a mystery and a phenomenon. Navigating the role and the “loose expectations” is often left up to you, the volunteer leader. You are often allowed to define your role and expected to produce proof you are succeeding. If we don’t ask the right questions, we will never get the right answers. This very brief “tour of the volunteer process” seeks to ask if you can communicate to your community the true impact your volunteers provide. This is an opportunity to look beyond the age-old questions typically asked of volunteer leaders: ï‚· How many volunteers did you have last year? ï‚· And how many hours did they serve? Volunteering is about people, the mission and impact this partnership has on a community. Volunteer leaders should be able to tell the story. Discover how you can tell your success story and be able to impact real decision-making in your organization!

About the presenter:
