Volunteers

Community Connections: Promoting and supporting volunteerism

New training opportunities on marketing, promotion and communications

Working from a sense of plenty

All events and volunteer positions are full!  All businesses are prospering! Isn’t that a lovely dream!  What can we do to work towards this dream?  Sooke Region Volunteer Centre (SRVC) and Saseenos Communications are pleased to support local small businesses and non-profit groups with our new training opportunities. Marketing, Promotion & Communications will provide you with some new tips and tricks.  Originally scheduled for April, the workshops will be held over two Saturday mornings, May 9 & 16 (9:30 a.m. to noon each day) and will help build awareness of events, attract new members and raise revenue through donations or grants.

Participants can discuss their communications challenges, learn how marketing, promotion and communications can benefit their organization in today’s rapidly changing communications environment and receive hands-on help in developing a strategy. They will also receive feedback and discuss getting the message out, social media and no-cost and low-cost techniques. Participants will take away additional resources including handouts, templates and further reading list and be able to sign up for one-on-one structured feedback at a later date to polish their final product.

This workshop is free for SRVC members and $10.00 for non-members.

To register for either or both of these learning opportunities or to receive more information, contact sookeregionvolunteers@gmail.com or leave a message at 250-642-6364 Ext. 235.,
