Virtual volunteering is a hot topic these days. With busier schedules and longer commuting times, more and more volunteers are actively seeking to engage in remote or off-site volunteering via the inernet, for opportunities to complete tasks from a home or work computer.
Join HandsOn Twin Cities and Karen Kitchel, president of Cheerful Givers, for a training session on virtual volunteering on Wednesday, Sept. 21.
We’ll review actual case studies involving virtual volunteering and work to help you to design your own Virtual Volunteer Plan.
This plan will empower your agency, nonprofit or organization to expand the benefits of its volunteer programs by allowing for more volunteers to participate and utilizing volunteers in new areas.
During the workshop, we’ll address the following questions:
– What is a virtual volunteer?
– Why would an organization use virtual volunteers?
– How do you find virtual volunteers?
– What are the pros and cons of running a virtual volunteer program?
Here’s the workshop agenda:
11:30 a.m. – Registration; networking
11:45 a.m. – Program
1:00 p.m. – Event close
