What does volunteering look like now? How do we help volunteers engage meaningfully with opportunities?

Learn better ways to recruit, train and sustain volunteers at this one-day workshop sponsored by our national association, the Canadian Unitarian Council [CUC]. Whether you are a volunteer team lead or chair, the coordinator of a fundraiser, or are serving in a paid staff position, this workshop is for you!

This is a live, in-person training in Saskatoon with local and national leaders, but if you are out of town, online participation is available. (Please register in advance, as both in person and on-line events must meet minimum enrollment to proceed!)

Join this workshop created by Angela Klassen [Director Lifespan Religious Education, Toronto First], Julie Fleming Juárez* [Saskatoon Open Door], Rev. Linda Thomson and Joan Carolyn [CUC].

Registration:  $55.00 in-person       $25.00 on-line

Deadline: August 1

Note: Online participation will only occur with 5 or more registered to ensure that there are sufficient participants for Zoom group discussion (register early to make sure this goes ahead!). Online participants are encouraged to gather in one location.

Refreshments: Morning and afternoon snacks provided for on-site participants, please bring your own sack lunch.
