Special Interest: Online Engagement
**Please note: this session is also included as a module in our Plan to Protect® Orientation (Online Engagement) course.**
Do you utilize virtual volunteers, or do your staff engage with the vulnerable sector online? Including "virtual" elements to your existing programs could expand the benefits of your organization's work and help you achieve your purposes. Perhaps you have a website, platform, or live service where volunteers and staff can communicate with the community online. Or maybe you want to host an online youth group or small group. You may even have a desire to provide support, mentoring, or couselling online. Do you need to screen and train virtual volunteers and employees? Let's Plan to Protect®!
This recorded webinar is designed for all organizations who are, or who hope to provide online engagement and programs. In this webinar, Victoria Bissell, Child Protection Officer of Rift Valley Academy and former Director of Training at Plan to Protect®, will provide practical tips for safety when it comes to online engagement and programs. We will also suggest sample policy statements for screening, training and supervising virtual volunteers and staff. Let's raise the bar on protection!
