COVID-19: Achieve Skills-Based Volunteer Recognition
Date: Thursday, May 28, 2020
Time: 12PM – 1PM
|I know the ups and downs of COVID-19 are concerning. |
Here’s the good news: Our community is coming together in a big way. Though you might hear about some difficulties, I can tell you the good does outweigh the bad. People from all corners of the GTA are helping out.
When volunteers are needed en masse, that’s sometimes called surge volunteering. Our community isn’t new to that idea. Today, it’s an emergency situation, but back in 2015 there was also a surge, for the Pan-Am/Para Pan-Am Games. Three things came out of that big event: 128 Canadian gold medals, Pachi the Porcupine (remember him?!), and a new way to recognize the contributions of volunteers: Achieve Ontario.
Achieve is a skills-based volunteer recognition system and we’re going to show you how to use it to your advantage and for the benefit of volunteers. Volunteerism is still changing. We need to adapt to keep our community engaged and prosperous as they contribute their time and skills. We need to foster a culture of volunteerism and ensure that those efforts are recognized. Let’s reframe COVID-19 so it’s not a story only of hardship, but one where volunteers are known as the heartbeat of our community, and make sure that after this crisis passes that that fact is not forgotten.
