In response to COVID-19, Together Project's staff and volunteers had to quickly adapt and pivot their programs in order to continue providing social support to newcomers in Canada. While their new model is only a few months in the making, Together Project has learned a great deal about how to set up an online volunteering program.
In this webinar, hear from Anna Hill and Andrew Lusztyk as they share their insights, including:
How to get started setting up an online volunteering program;
Tips and tools to develop a greater capacity to onboard and train volunteers remotely;
Benefits and challenges of online volunteering;
How online volunteering can help vulnerable demographics––from equipping volunteers to tackle new challenges, such as helping newcomers access digital devices, to familiarizing newcomers with video conferencing apps, navigating financial supports, setting up food bank deliveries for isolated seniors, and more.
