ESN workshop "Togetherness in Volunteerism" on 2nd March 2008

Volunteer leadership and good volunteer group management practices are key to the sustenance and growth of a volunteer group

In “Together in Volunteerism”, what we hope to achieve is to share good practices of volunteer management through a forum style discussion to better prepare the volunteer leader in facing the potential challenges.

Teamwork is another big component in a volunteer group. “Teamwork? Teamwork!” attempts to emphasise the importance of teamwork through a game setting.

Servicing in the elderly sector in Singapore, knowledge of basic conversational dialect is useful to facilitate communication. Dialect training (Hokkien or Cantonese) is covered in the workshop to help the volunteer conduct simple conversations with elderly who can only speak or understand dialect.

Literally, the “Transferring and Transporting Elderly” section is to equip the volunteer with skills to handle the elderly during transferring and transporting the elderly via wheelchair. We have invited a specialist to share with us the techniques to transfer and transport an elderly as we engage them in activities, considering both the safety of the elderly and the care-giver.
