e-learning: Family Volunteering information webinar @ Online Webinar
Jan 26 @ 11:00 – 12:00

Family VolunteeringVolunteer Ireland is delighted to be working on an exciting Erasmus+ project to extend the knowledge, understanding and availability of Family Volunteering opportunities.

Earlier this year we carried out research across the six partner countries and we look forward to sharing this information with you, we’ll explore what we’ve learnt, the barriers, the trends and explore some of the options of how you can get involved as a volunteer or volunteer involving organisation (VIO).

Over the coming months, we will be developing resources and toolkits to help volunteer involving organisations better understand and manage family volunteering. On the webinar, we’ll be launching our pilot projects and we’ll be looking to partner and support a number of VIOs to pilot family volunteering projects in their organisations.

The project is implemented in partnership with: Pro Vobis (Romania) Volunteer Ireland (Ireland), Hrvatski centar za razvoj volonterstva (Croatia), Freiwilligen-Zentrum Augsburg (Germany), Vestre Aker Frivilligsentral (Norway) and the Centre for European Volunteering (Belgium).

This course will be run as an online webinar on Zoom and is free to attend. Facilitator: Stuart Garland

(This session was previously delivered on Monday 9 November)

e-learning: Fundamentals of delivering online training for volunteers @ Online Webinar
Feb 2 @ 11:00 – 12:30

Volunteer Management & Leadership E-learning hubMany challenges face Volunteer Involving Organisations, primarily these are around the delivery of face-to-face services by volunteers. While you may be exploring alternative forms of volunteering such as virtual volunteering you should now take the time to also explore delivering your volunteer training online.

Volunteer Involving Organisations are now looking at alternative ways to “on board” their volunteers without the need for them to do this in a group face-to-face setting. In this session we’ll explore a series of tips and tricks that will help you maximise the engagement and effectiveness of your online training.

This webinar is delivered via the Zoom platform
