Change is a journey, not a destination.
Is volunteering really changing? Are we focussing on the right things?
What are the familiar things we are trying to change? How do they differ from the things we actually need to change but that are sometimes harder to identify and that the organisation itself may not even recognise?
Let’s talk about what is really important in our volunteering programmes, what is changing and what we might want to focus on.
It will be a very interactive session which will give the participants some practical ideas of what they can do in their own roles to better understand and thrive in changing situations in their roles and organisations.
To take part in this training session you’ll need to:
- Sign-up before the 22nd September 2021
- Answer the questions in the application form about you, you’ll see these when you register to attend
- Be able to have your camera turned on during the session
- Be prepared to take part in a highly interactive session
