More informations about this webinar

Webinar Description 

Want more volunteers? Want to give your current volunteers more satisfaction and flexibility in supporting your organization? Want to reach potential volunteers that you aren't reaching now?

Virtual volunteering — volunteers doing some or all of their service offsite, via a home or work computer, via their smart phone, or via another networked device, allows you to do all this and more!

Join volunteer management expert and TechSoup forum host Jayne Cravens to review the assignments online volunteers love, particularly focusing on ones that have real impact at organizations. She'll review leadership opportunities, micro tasks, and everything in between.
