Join us at our Camden & Islington Winter 2022 Volunteering Fair when we are once again joining forces with our good friends @ Volunteer Centre Islington on Tuesday 8th February, 12.30-2pm online via ZOOM. (You must register here on Eventbrite to receive the Zoom link!)
Did you know that volunteering is good for you? Studies show that volunteering can improve and maintain your mental and physical health, and well as helping with the effects of stress, anxiety and low self esteem. And the social contact of helping and working with others can have a profound effect on your overall psychological wellbeing. Good times.
Organisations booked to attend the fair:
- North London Cares
- University College London Hospital
- Check back for updates!
12.30-12.40 Welcomes and introductions from the hosts. Explanation of the fair and how it will work.
12.40-1pm Brief pitch for volunteers from the ten organisations
Then all organisations recruiting volunteers will be popped into ten different breakout rooms. Volunteers can choose to join them there. Each organisation will deliver a short presentation about the volunteering role(s), the organisation itself and the benefits of volunteering with them. This will be repeated three times (see below for timings). You can choose to attend one breakout room, three different rooms or anything in between.
1-1.20pm Breakout room session 1
1.20-1.40pm Breakout room session 2
1.40-2pm Breakout session 3
2pm Event ends, everyone back in the main room for a very quick reminder of the next steps, and then a brief thank you and goodbye!
Before the fair we will send you the Zoom link as well as the full list of the organisations that will be attending, and a bit the roles that they are recruiting for.
After the fair all participants will receive a follow-up email detailing how you apply for the roles and / or contact the organisations that attended the fair.
PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are only needed for people who want to find out about volunteering in Camden & Islington. If you are a non-profit that wants to recruit volunteers in Camden or Islington at the fair, then get in touch with Sheila @ Volunteer Centre Camden (firstname.lastname@example.org).
