Volunteer 101 Workshop:
All You Need to Know About Volunteerism and Volunteering
Volunteer Hamilton is dedicated to the engagement of volunteers of all ages and circumstances. Our goal is to facilitate that engagement by raising awareness and understanding about volunteerism in the social profit sector and assisting those who want to volunteer in connecting with volunteer opportunities.
Toward that end, we offer an approximately one hour long PowerPoint based presentation which can be delivered in high school classrooms or in meeting areas of interested organization. We can also facilitate groups visiting Volunteer Hamilton for these informative and useful presentations.
