WHAT TO EXPECT THIS YEAR
We are looking for enthusiastic and empathetic business professionals who are prepared to partner with nonprofits as they continue to navigate these challenging times. Each team will decide when to hold regular team meetings and will need to determine what works best for them at the outset of the project. It's critical that volunteers enjoy team-based work, have the availability to attend regular team meetings, and are fully prepared to meet the engagement expectations outlined above. Volunteering with Compass is a commitment. Your team, client, and Compass will be counting on you to show up and contribute for the duration of the project.
The Compass program will be hybrid this year. From our experiences over the past two years, we know that Compass can work well virtually, but we also know the experience is greatly enhanced by in person touch-points. This year, all Compass trainings will be provided live over Zoom, and we will hold some social and networking events in-person. Volunteers can expect that most team meetings will be conducted virtually. We strongly encourage teams to visit client sites and gather occasionally in-person if it can be done safely and in accordance with public health guidelines.
