COVID-19 Webinar: Risk management for volunteer programmes @ Online Webinar
Jun 2 @ 11:00 – 12:00

COVID-19 Volunteering Webinars

Risk management should be integrated into every aspect of a volunteer programme.

Although much of the analysis and policy development takes place at the board level of the organisation, the overall effectiveness is only as good as the staff and volunteers who carry it out. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to: explain risk management and appreciate its importance regarding volunteers, discuss policies and procedures related to risk management, identify and evaluate potential risks in volunteer involvement, address and diminish risk with preventive strategies and techniques such as volunteer role design, screening and training.
