This past Saturday marked a new milestone for Villa Finale: our very first Volunteer Orientation! Current and new Volunteer Staff members attended a morning session in which safety, security, operational policies and the Volunteer Staff Manual were reviewed. This was also the first time many on the Volunteer Staff had the opportunity to meet one another – and what better way to do that than over coffee and pastries! If you would like to join our volunteer ranks, go the Get Involved section and click on the blue volunteer application link to download a form. Congratulations to Villa Finale’s very FIRST volunteer class – we couldn’t do it without you!
Volunteer Council Formed
Saturday also marked the inaugural meeting of Villa Finale’s Volunteer Council. This group of six have been active members of the Volunteer Staff for some time – they were chosen in part for their dedication and experience for this very important role. The Volunteer Council will work closely with the Manager of Public Programs to recruit volunteers, create volunteer projects, mentor, help shape Villa Finale’s volunteer program, and more. Villa Finale hopes to make the volunteer experience with the organization active and highly worthwhile – and the Volunteer Council will be at the heart of this endeavor. Thank you Volunteer Council!
Interim Chair: Merribell Parsons
Co-Chair: Aaron Webb
Secretary: Rebecca Ingraham
Villa Finale would like to thank the following Volunteer Staff members for their significant milestones … glad to have you part of the team!
