With the juggle of work, schedules and activities, it’s easy for families to sometimes feel disconnected. But simple things, such as volunteering, can bring a family closer. Volunteering is one of the most productive, fun and satisfying ways to unite your family. Family volunteering helps to strengthen the community all while strengthening your family. During this virtual classroom you’ll learn tips on getting started with family volunteering and how to make the most of your family’s time together.
Today, volunteers utilize a number of innovative ways to support communities and nonprofit organizations in need. While not a substitute for hands-on volunteering, practices such as board service and skills-based volunteering allow volunteers to commit their time, talents and resources in ways never imagined before. Nonprofit board service and skills-based volunteering are excellent ways to develop leadership and professional skills all while providing significant support to nonprofit organizations. This virtual classroom will provide an overview of both concepts, including what to expect when committing your skills to a nonprofit organization or board and ensuring that your service is meaningful and impactful.
Are you ready to take the next step in serving your community by planning your own volunteer project? During this virtual classroom, we’ll explore the art and science of project planning, from selecting the right nonprofit partner and recruiting volunteers to ensuring that every minute of the volunteer experience is meaningful. Whether you are planning a project for your team at work, for your friends and family or for yourself, this webinar will provide you with the tips and tricks to ensure your onsite, offsite, or online volunteer project goes smoothly.
