When Life Gives You Lemons … Now is the Time Your Community Needs You Most

There’s clearly A LOT going on right now. The evolving Coronavirus pandemic is wreaking havoc on our organizations and our homes.

And, although we may be fearful about the future, now is the time that our communities need us the most.

As the person responsible for creating volunteer connections, you already know what’s needed to mobilize communities.It’s what you do. So, you know you’ve got this, right?

Although we are surrounded by uncertainty, now is the time to take positive action. Volunteers want to stay active and engaged, so you don’t want to rob them of the opportunity to be of service.

But you also want to do so in a thoughtful way.

In this masterclass, I’ll help you find the clarity and courage to keep going and to ensure that your agency is uniquely positioned to thrive over the long term.

This Masterclass is a MUST Attend If …

  • You are wondering how you should go about maintaining connections with existing volunteers
  • You are unsure whether you should continue to engage volunteers, given the existing threat of disease transmission

  • You are scrambling to find appropriate projects and tasks to keep volunteers active, and in the loop, even when your offices are closed

  • You are confused about which tech tools will best support remote work, with draining your budget

  • You are worried about what the future may bring for your volunteers, co-workers, and those you serve, and you know the best way to manage fear is by taking action now

Let’s Make Some Lemonade!

I know this is a tough time, but as third sector leaders we are tough and we are resilient. This is the time to tap into that inner strength.

Your agency’s volunteers have supported you over the years, now it’s time to support them. Many want to stay busy and continue to contribute to the greater good (even when the going gets tough).

With every challenge comes a silver lining.

This crisis gives us all the opportunity to reflect upon how vital volunteers are to our organizations and gives us extra resolve (and time) to create truly exceptional experiences for those who deserve them most.

I hope you’ll join me. Let’s turn lemons into lemonade.

All the Best,
