Successfully Recruit, Engage, and Retain Volunteers During a Pandemic

October 13, 2020



Oakland, CA – October 13, 2020 COVID-19’s impact on volunteering challenges nonprofits, individuals, and companies to find ways to continue to serve communities in need. VolunteerMatch has spent the last seven months researching across sectors what these challenges are, creating ways to overcome them, and designing a webinar premiering on October 29, 2020 to help us all pivot so that service continues as seamlessly as possible. “We want to help those who want to volunteer be sure that their efforts continue to thrive by not allowing the uncertainty of how to do so safely get in the way. We are excited to offer fresh insights that we believe will prove to be helpful to keep moving forward to the other side of this pandemic.” – Laura Plato, Chief Solutions Officer, VolunteerMatch

Viewers will learn about the latest top five barriers to volunteering, creative tips for virtual and safely distanced service, and proven methods to recruit, engage, and retain volunteers during uncertain times. Such practical and immediately implementable approaches to overcoming barriers to service is a priority for VolunteerMatch, especially now.
