This session will cover key issues for volunteer programmes right now such as adapting current roles to fit current circumstances and creating new roles for new demands. We will look at how to manage volunteers offsite, including virtual volunteering and volunteering from home. And crucially, we will look at what organisations need to do to ensure their volunteer programmes can survive during these challenging times.
Trainers: Riona Rochford and Olivia Byrne, Volunteer Development Officers at Sligo Volunteer Centre.
With 15 year’s experience in the Volunteer Centre between them, Riona and Olivia have a wealth of knowledge about how to attract the right volunteers for your organisation and how to keep them! From their daily interactions with people looking to volunteer they know what Sligo people are interested in doing. And from their interaction with colleagues nationwide and locally with all types of community groups/non-profits in Sligo, they know about how some groups have already successfully pivoted. We can all learn from each other. If you manage volunteers, come along to learn some thing new, make connections and get re-energised.
