Living in a Virtual World: How Nonprofits and Volunteers Can Benefit from Cyber Volunteerism

January 30 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Volunteers today come in many forms. Giving your time to a good cause can include more than being physically on site—and in an increasingly digital world, being “in person” isn’t required. Every day, volunteers across the country lend a hand virtually, from computers, tablets, phones and other mobile devices. All you need is Internet access—and sometimes, just a phone. This webinar will answer the question “what is virtual volunteering?” cover the history, the benefits, how to become a virtual volunteer, where to recruit and how to manage virtual volunteers, and resources that will help you get started connecting right away. Tracy Nielsen, Executive Director of HandsOn Twin Cities will be joined by Kate Errickson from Minnesota Children’s Museum to discuss how their organization is putting online volunteers to work to advance their mission.

Better Angels Moderator Training

February 2 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
LeadMN, 1515 South Robert Street
West St. Paul, MN 55118 United States

Over the last five decades, more Americans have come to support interracial marriage, but fewer now want their family members to marry someone with a different political affiliation. That's just one sign of growing polarization, distrust, and contempt. Do you want to bring together people who lean red and blue politically to talk with, rather than simply at or about one another? We're excited to announce an opportunity to partner with Better Angels to organize workshops that foster mutual understanding and even some common ground. Some of the workshops that have happened in Minnesota and elsewhere have produced ongoing Better Angels alliances of liberals and conservatives working together in their community -- and you can learn more about the model and its results from: the Better Angels website; a five-minute video of Virginia interviews after a Better Angels workshop; and a Star Tribune article on a local workshop. Minnesota Campus Compact and Better Angels are co-sponsoring a training for people interested in organizing and moderating these workshops. It will take place on Friday, February…

We'll individually map areas of expertise and growth, then dive into deeper conversation about key domains of practice, exchanging tips and strategies as we go.  After lunch, we'll consider the value proposition for civic and community engagement in higher education today.

Ripple Effects Mapping Webinar

March 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Zoom,

Are you looking for a great way to document the impacts of your community engagement efforts? Ripple Effects Mapping (REM) uses elements of Appreciative Inquiry, mind mapping, and qualitative data analysis to engage program participants to reflect upon and visually map the intended and unintended changes produced by a complex program or collaboration. The result is not only a powerful technique to document impacts, but a way to engage and re-energize participants and stakeholders to keep moving toward collective goals. Presenter Scott Chazdon, an evaluator with the University of Minnesota's Extension Center for Community Vitality, will provide an in-depth description of REM’s use to document the impacts of collaborative community initiatives, such as community gardening efforts in the Frogtown and Rondo neighborhoods near downtown Saint Paul, and community engaged scholarship programming at the University of Minnesota.  Participants are encouraged to download A Field Guide to Ripple Effects Mapping, a free e-book, to reference during the webinar: https://www.lib.umn.edu/publishing/monographs/program-evaluation-series#Book Registration is free…
