The Volunteer Support Program is a series of trainings meant to support those who engage volunteers to support their mission, program, and projects.
In this hour, we will not be training on a specific topic, rather we will offer a chance for participants to interact with others in the volunteer-supporting field. We will open space to discuss challenges, seek insight, offer feedback, and get to know others doing similar work.Registrants will receive a link to the Zoom meeting by email closer to date.
