In a time where face-to-face volunteer recruitment is off the table for a while, how is your organisation reaching out to the right people?
Presenting the Virtual Volunteer Fayre – where organisations get to share the word about their important work and spotlight their volunteer opportunities, and potential volunteers can sit back with a coffee in their own homes and view presentations at their leisure!
We have supported organisations such as Voices, Expert Citizens, Coroners Support Services, Beth Johnson Foundation, Saltbox, the Shaw Trust, Revival, Appetite, Connecting Choices., Emmaus Furniture Mine and Middleport Matters to do exactly that – and are looking forward to hosting two of these lively events per year.
The event is held live on Zoom and each organisation gets to present their own five-minute video and answer questions from the audience. As well as all the latest news and current opportunities, we hear stories from volunteers about the difference volunteering has made to their lives.
You can view the videos from our December 20 event on our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYO90fkAMOc
The fayres take place on Zoom. If you join live you will have an opportunity to ask questions of the volunteer managers or, alternatively you can view these back at a time that suits you.
The next Volunteer Fayre will take place in June 2021. If you are an organisation that would like to present a video, you can register your interest now by emailing email@example.com
