Volun-Cheer: What Will Volunteering Look Like Post COVID?
Lisa Mort-Putland, Executive Director – Volunteer Victoria
There are things to cheer about this year and volunteerism is one of them. Thousands of volunteers were displaced from their regular volunteering roles in 2020 and now we all have an opportunity to reset our vision for volunteerism. If you are recruiting new volunteers, on boarding existing volunteers, or planning your own personal volunteer adventures we have things to think about!
