Feeling bogged down by repetitive communication? Strapped for time and resources? Ensuring volunteers have all the training materials they need at their fingertips can be an exceptionally daunting task, especially for those with a healthy fear of technology. Yet the time savings involved can be astronomical, both in training time and resources. Learn how the San Diego Zoo tackled the challenge, launching a new Volunteer Connection web site on which to post a wide variety of training materials that volunteers can access from the comfort of their own homes. Investigate how this unique site has become a safe social network for San Diego Zoo Global Volunteers. We will dive right into the challenges, techniques, questions and concerns this site has posed for us and how we've addressed each. Experience the site's functionality, and learn how you can start up a portal site like this for your volunteers too!!
