How does it work?
We work with video conferencing system Zoom. Before the training you receive instruction per mail how to install Zoom on your computer, laptop or tablet. Before each session you receive an invitation with a link to join the online training.
We start each session with a soundcheck and check in. During the training we work with exercises, sometimes with use of breakout rooms with small groups. Halfway each session there is an intermission. We end each session with a check-out.
This training is intended for new buddies or volunteers who (wish to) work for one of our partner organisations. Please note: enrollment for this course takes place via your coordinator of the volunteering organisation..
