Volunteer Screening and Engagement Forums
Volunteer Screening and Engagement Forum are delivered in-person across the province. Explore the issue of volunteer screening and the impact of police information checks on volunteer engagement in Alberta.
The forums include a workshop version of Screening Volunteers In. Not Out. as well as a stewardship dialogue and strategic thinking session related to the issue of volunteer screening, engagement, and police information checks.
We look at the issue through the “three P’s of screening” – participation, protection, and privacy. Using a systems thinking approach and iceberg model, we dive deep into underlying mindsets that inform volunteer screening. We explore the big picture of volunteer screening and the role that we, as nonprofit leaders, play to engage in meaningful dialogue, uncovering new considerations, and helping to guide discussions about what is important in volunteer screening and management.
Stay tuned for upcoming forums in the Capital Region, Central Alberta, and Southern Alberta in 2017.
