Topic:Getting Volunteers Safely Back to Work  During Covid19 Pandemic 

Guest Speaker: Cassandra Smallman, Head of Marketing – InitLive

For many months nonprofit organizations around the world have stopped volunteer programs that work directly in the community to protect both their volunteers and community members. However, much of the work that volunteers perform in communities is essential, from food banks to community care programs people rely on programs that are worked by volunteers. After many months of a standstill, it is now time to consider how to get volunteers back to work safely to start offering the community essential services.

Participants will also learn strategies to enable working safely as our organizations return or continue in offering community essential services in the midst of a multitude of changes.  Melissa will also discuss options for initiating safety protocols; also how to be proactive in developing an emergency response plan for your program in the event mishap occurs.  She will offer suggestions for creating a safety checklist for working onsite or remotely’ and discuss ways development of a Preparedness and Response Plan can help volunteer leaders and staff establish clear lines of control and command.  All Participants will receive link to download a free guide “Covid 19 Volunteer Safety Guide and Checklist.”
