Hear about the impacts of COVID-19 on the program, sign-up for RAVN events and connect with AVI
A welcome message from Australian Volunteers Program Director Zoë Mander-Jones
Dear returned volunteers,
Welcome to your August Returned Australian Volunteer Network newsletter.
This newsletter brings together the returned volunteer community, in Australia and overseas, to keep you connected with the latest news from the Australian Volunteers Program and the network.
This month, we had a wonderful opportunity to bring staff together from around the world through a series of online reflection workshops. These workshops encourage cross-program learning and are a valuable way for us to progress our commitment to improving what we do.
While COVID-19 continues to challenge the way we deliver the program, it also presents us with new opportunities and possibilities. In this newsletter, you will see there are a number of exciting ways returned volunteers can stay involved with the program and each other, including the Talent Pool, RAVN events and, coming soon, Remote Volunteering. I also encourage you to reach out to your fellow returned volunteers through the RAVN Facebook groups.
We're constantly reviewing the content in this newsletter and our RAVN activities and would love to hear from you. If you have any ideas, email us at email@example.com.
Program Director, Australian Volunteers Program
