Did you know that commencing 2018 Peel Regional Police is charging for Police Record Checks for volunteers? Is your organization ready to manage the significant financial impact and volunteer turnover when delivering your programs and services?
Volunteer MBC is playing our part in supporting the not-for-profit organizations prepare for these changes by offering a three-part series that will give you the tools to effectively manage your screening process and adapt to these changes.
The first in the series is a webinar that highlights the screening process. The second webinar is about risk management and we will also have Peel Regional Police join the webinar to explain the charges and to answer any queries from the audience. The final installment of the series is a workshop on behaviour-based interviewing. The series is designed to help leaders of volunteers identify the right volunteer to the right role, in other words, to "screen-in" the right volunteer.
