The NYCI Child Protection Programme is delivering a series of live webinars in 2021 to support the youth sector with some of the key issues impacting them due to Covid-19.

For this webinar, The Child Protection Programme has partnered with Volunteer Ireland to offer a live webinar for youth work organisations, to look at how societal changes are impacting the way people volunteer. We will look at virtual, micro and episodic volunteering as ways of engaging new volunteers and how we can keep our current volunteers engaged when volunteering isn’t possible. We’ll also explore good practice in volunteer management and leadership.

The webinar will be delivered by Stuart Garland from Volunteer Ireland.


Each session will have a max of 40 people


Free of charge
