Family Volunteer Day is a wonderful opportunity to gather multiple generations to make a real difference in the community. It's energizing to see so much good work accomplished in such a short period of time. But how can we help families make giving back an everyday habit rather than a once-a-year project? Join generationOn and the executive director of Doing Good Together, Jenny Friedman, and discover how to inspire families with the benefits of building giving and serving into their everyday lives. You'll learn why families are eager to find fun, simple ways to raise compassionate, engaged children, and discover how to create unique service activities that can be folded into a family's regular routine.

In the event of a disaster, it is important that community organizations and businesses can continue to operate. This is especially true for those organizations who provide essential services to community members, as many small organizations and businesses do. This session explores the concept of Continuity of Operations Planning in order to be prepared in case of such an event. We will look at elements of the plan and planning process, including community partnerships for mutual aid and support; staff and volunteer safety and accountability; and back filling of positions vacated by disaster response or other activities.

Nearly every large-scale disaster evokes an outpouring of individuals wanting to be involved in response and relief activities. These individuals, although well-intentioned, are rarely trained, experienced, or certified in any official disaster response function, and therefore can often add to the already overtaxed resources available to assist the impacted community. This session will explore the issue of these spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers and provide some thoughts on how to address the issue efficiently and effectively. We will look at ideas for messaging regarding these individuals as well as what motivates them. The session also includes an overview of the Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) and the roles and responsibilities required in managing a successful VRC.

Topics will include packing for your deployment; Disaster 101 (an overview of how disaster response works); terminology you may hear while deployed; taking care of yourself; and suggestions for having the best experience you can.
