Volunteers today come in many forms. Giving your time to a good cause can include more than being physically on site—and in an increasingly digital world, being “in person” isn’t required. Every day, volunteers across the country lend a hand virtually, from computers, tablets, phones and other mobile devices. All you need is Internet access—and sometimes, just a phone.
This webinar will answer the question “what is virtual volunteering?” and cover the history, the benefits, how to become a virtual volunteer, where to recruit and how to manage virtual volunteers, and resources that will help you get started connecting right away. Tracy Nielsen, Executive Director of HandsOn Twin Cities will be joined by Kate Errickson from Minnesota Children’s Museum to discuss how their organizations are putting online volunteers to work to advance their mission.
Sponsored by Minnesota Campus Compact, HandsOn Twin Cities, and Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration.
