Virtual Volunteer Screening & Engagement Guidebook

Ever wonder what other organizations are doing to move their volunteer programs online or remote? In recent years, Volunteer Alberta has observed and learned from organizations in Alberta about good practices in virtual volunteer screening and engagement. This guidebook is a collection of good and emerging practices we’ve seen and heard about from all of you! It is meant to be a resource for organizations beginning, continuing, or enhancing their virtual volunteering activities.

This guidebook:

  • Builds and expands upon Volunteer Canada’s 10 Steps to Screening from a virtual perspective
  • Includes information and resources about Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in volunteer screening throughout
  • Provides scalable suggestions and recommendations to fit your organization’s unique screening and engagement needs

After all, we know that one-size-fits-all screening practices do not exist! So, we encourage you to read through this resource and find strategies and practices that fit your organization and your communities’ needs.
