Greetings KAAAV Members:
Here are some opportunities for education for the upcoming months.
During these unprecedented times, we know that many agencies have had to close to the public and/or significantly reduce services due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
At the same time, people are generously offering their time, skills and talents to volunteer and help.
The United Way Volunteer Centre is collecting this information, and as organizations are adapting programs and innovating ways to serve clients,
we are working to provide a streamlined approach to assist the community with matching individuals and groups who want to volunteer, with organizations that can use their help.
If your organization is looking for volunteers to assist during the COVID-19 pandemic, and have implemented ways to safely recruit and deploy volunteers using public health guidelines, please:
- or, post your opportunity(ies) on the Volunteer Centre website: https://www.unitedwaykfla.ca/volunteer-centre/.
In the coming days and weeks ahead, we will share information with you about volunteers who match your needs, so that you can follow up with them, directly, and provide pertinent information about volunteer duties, protocols and requirements that your organization will have in place for volunteering (i.e. COVID-19 screening) etc.
Thank you very much for all that your organization is doing during these challenging times!
The Volunteer Checklist – Volunteering During COVID-19 is also provided on the Volunteer Centre website to provide potential volunteers
with information about how to keep themselves and others, safe while volunteering.
