How Volunteerism is Evolving for the Post-Pandemic World
Presented by Steve Mutty, VF's CEO
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed almost everything - family and community resilience, how we help and heal ourselves and how we might help and heal others through volunteerism. As the health emergency that began in late winter of 2020 continues to be contained, we will transition to a period of recovery that many experts believe may last a generation. The economic effects of the pandemic have sapped resources across the board at a time when they are needed most. Volunteers will be expected to be there to fill many of these gaps, but the urgency and the stakes will be higher than ever. This session explores how community needs and the way volunteers are mobilized to meet those needs have been profoundly changed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As in-person volunteer capability eventually returns to normal levels, leaders in volunteerism need to use what we have learned from the pandemic to assure that the work we do to help our communities recover will be on target and impactful. We will need to support and communicate with one another as never before and leverage our resources to amplify the impact of volunteerism to help families and communities thrive again.
