Position Senior Leadership Team Member - Connecting Senior Volunteers in Community
Impact Statement Volunteer Victoria’s mission is to inspire everyone to volunteer!

In this project your leadership will help us to create new knowledge and tools to help promote seniors volunteerism in the Victoria community and to support the healthy return of seniors to the volunteer marketplace during and post COVID-19.
Description The primary objective of this senior volunteer-led and managed project is to promote volunteerism to seniors. During the project participants will interview and survey 300+ local senior volunteers to learn from them and better understand their volunteering journeys, knowledge, experiences and lessons learned through COVID-19 and to capture their concerns, needs and vision moving forward past the pandemic. The knowledge gained will be shared with 500+ organizations to better promote volunteerism and to meet the second objective which is to support healthy aging as seniors return to the volunteer marketplace.
Members of the project’s senior leadership team will be trained to interview and survey senior volunteers, will transcribe the interviews and analyze the data in order to identify common themes, best practices and transferable lessons. Those interested may also assist in the development of a resulting handbook, an on-line publication and a short video.
