- What – people and places virtual volunteer meeting – an opportunity to meet previous volunteers and local project leaders – to get the latest news if you are a previous volunteer – or if you are thinking about volunteering to learn more about us and the way we work – with no strings attached!
- Why – volunteers past and present have told us these meetings are important to them – to decide whether they can and want to help us – to learn what the opportunities are – to share their experiences and catch up with news about the programmes they have worked with – to catch up with the latest pandemic situation in the countries where we work and our partners’ plans for when they will be able to welcome you again in person – to learn about how you could help from home.
- Where – from your own home or wherever you can access the internet
- How – via Zoom
- Who – you, other previous, present and future volunteers, local partners and project leaders from The Gambia, Morocco, South Africa and Cambodia………and the people and places team. Please do bring a friend – anyone you feel may be interested in our work
- How long – about a couple of hours
Our virtual volunteer meetings have proved to be more popular than we could have hoped.
” – the zoom meeting really helped me think about what I can and want to do – thankyou for being so welcoming”
“Thankyou for arranging such an informative session – I am now even more excited about planning my volunteering with you”
“I really enjoyed listening to the other volunteers and their experiences and it was managed most skilfully by Paul who drew in plenty of people as well as managing the time very well. What struck me was that most were, like me, people who had not worked abroad before but welcomed the opportunity to share skills, visit new places (eventually!) and meet people from other countries. ”
“people and places are very good at staying in touch, in fact it was a group video meeting with old and new volunteers, that I was attending as a future in-person volunteer, that gave me the impetus to enquire about e-volunteering.”
“…it was so good to be able to hear about the developments since I volunteered ….well worth all your hard work – thankyou”
