Preparing to volunteer

Workshops are a necessary step for all remote volunteers before beginning their assignment.

It is a requirement that all volunteers attend a Preparing To Volunteer workshop (PTV). This is a three-hour interactive online workshop designed to prepare you for the program. The online workshop will be conducted in a group of volunteers and will address key information specific to the program, with a particular focus on volunteering in the online space. The webinar will be recorded, and can be accessed by volunteers at any time should you require it.

Failure to attend mandatory briefing sessions, or participate fully in the activities, may result in your assignment being delayed or cancelled.

Upcoming dates for PTV are:  

  • 11 October 2023 - 4pm-7pm
  • 15 November 2023 - 4pm-7pm
  • 6 December 2023 - 4pm-7pm
