In the first post of the blog, our Volunteer Coordinator, Ben, reflects on what’s been happening with the volunteer programme in June.
June has been a busy month – meeting people, making plans and learning lots about volunteering!
I have been in touch with lots of volunteers, making plans to host a ‘What next for volunteering at HOS?’ workshop. In that workshop we will exchange ideas about what we think the value of volunteering at HOS is, and what ideas we have for the volunteer programme. It’s been lots of fun making contact with – and speaking to – lots of the volunteer team for the first time.
I have also attended a training course with Volunteer Scotland, teaching me all about how to structure and coordinate a volunteer programme. This means that all my planning is now grounded in good practice. I’m excited to get started and share what we get up to!
