EBN: Volunteer Service & the Pandemic: Where Do We Stand Now?
Did you stop volunteering during the pandemic? Or maybe you started because of the urgent needs the pandemic surfaced. Or perhaps your in-person role shifted to remote. Whatever the impact on you, we know that volunteer service changed in significant ways during the past two years. But where do things stand now and what further changes might we expect?
During National Volunteer Week, we’ll take a hard look at how nonprofit service opportunities have changed during the pandemic and what we can expect going forward. How can people over 50 find ways to use their skills and experience to meet urgent needs in this current environment? Join a panel of leaders in the sector who can help us find answers and options to guide our efforts from this point forward.
Participating on the panel will be:
Chris Woods, Program Officer for Volunteer Initiatives for Massachusetts Service Alliance, which runs AmeriCorps, Commonwealth Corps and other service programs in Massachusetts.
Sara Hamilton, Executive Director of Boston Cares, which mobilizes and trains individual and corporate volunteers to serve in schools and nonprofits in the Boston area.
Dahlia Cox, Vice President, Engagement for United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, which runs a variety of volunteer initiatives and connects volunteers to nonprofits in eastern and northern Massachusetts.
Joseph Goncalves Cabral, Administrative Director of Volunteer Programs for Age Strong Boston, which runs the AmeriCorps Senior, Senior Companion and other volunteer programs in Boston.
