Perplexed about the way forward for your volunteer programme in the new normal?
Begin strategizing volunteer partnerships to resource your organization for success and impact in the post-COVID-19 world.

What is it about?

COVID-19 dramatically changed the way we work, travel, how we go about our lives and now the way we change-make as well. As we await the successful development of the vaccine, social purpose entities are beginning to feel the heat of having to stay updated with changes, effectively meet needs, delivery service, garner support and raise funds amidst the various safe distancing measures in place.

Join us in our short “Practically Thriving” webinar series to learn how we can strategically realise the potential of our volunteer programmes to grow impact and support for social purpose entities in the new post-COVID-19 world.
