Online Workshop on
Recruiting and Maintaining Volunteers
Community Literacy of Ontario and the
Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs are presenting an
electronic workshop for people working with literacy volunteers. The workshop
is accessible through the AlphaPlus Centre's discussion groups (AlphaCom) and
runs until the end of May.
Participants will be provided with
information that will help make volunteer management easier, including links to
resources on the Internet. The information is being delivered in a series of
six modules, a new module each week. To register go to http://alphacom.alphaplus.ca/home.
The workshop is free of charge.
