FCSSBC & Volunteer BC Volunteer Management Workshop: Engaging Volunteers Safely Now & Post-COVID (2 Day Workshop)
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
From trip hazards to funding shifts and world pandemics, volunteer-led
organizations and programs regularly have to deal with and navigate various types, levels, impacts, and frequencies of risk.
While individuals manage and mitigate risk in our everyday lives, volunteer-led organizations and programs need formal and targeted tools and processes to help identify, assess, communicate, and mitigate risk.
This 2-part series, offered in partnership with Volunteer BC, will take a high-level look at risk as it relates to community social services organizations. Participants will learn how to identify and assess risk by using simple tools and real life case studies.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is limited to 35 participants.
This workshop is supported by funding from the Community Social Services Training Fund—an initiative by the Province of British Columbia to respond to the training and development needs of those who work with some of BC’s most vulnerable people. Learn more about these other initiatives here.
This two-part workshop series will take place in 3-hour virtual synchronous seminars over a two-week period. Attendance in both sessions is mandatory and required for certificate of completion.
- Wednesday, June 16th from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
- Wednesday, June 23th from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PST)
