Volunteers help to make our Hope Lodge locations a home away from home in a number of different ways.  Volunteers make meals, provide entertainment, and help with activities for the guests – which is a great opportunity to give back as a group.  Volunteers also assist with administrative duties, light cleaning or gardening, and serve in on-site cancer resource centers.

Beyond Making the Ask:

Join this 90-minute virtual session to connect with others on how they are building relationships beyond the ask regardless of the outcome.

Communication Not Confrontation in Volunteer Relationships: 

Dive deeper into overcoming conflict. Most of the time conflict is the direct result of a conversation you are not having or if you are having it, are not having it well. Join this 90-minute virtual session as we lay out a process to help you plan for that conversation as well as steps to take to start a conversation the right way to put the relationship in the center.

The Working Partnership Agreement:

This 90-minute virtual session will give staff and volunteers a chance to be a “fly on the wall” for a partnership agreement discussion. A partnership agreement is a basis of a great relationship between volunteers and staff. If done well, is a living, working document that changes and develops throughout your time in a role.
