Introducing #VolOps: Sharing Volunteering Options.
Comhlámh wants to harness social media as a tool to match volunteers with sending agencies.
We are encouraging sending agencies to append #VolOps to any posting on Twitter or Facebook about placements or events where volunteers can find out about them.
A Linked In Group For Sending Agencies and Volunteers.
Are you looking to volunteer abroad? Are you or a sending agency looking for suitable candidates? We’ve created a #VolOps networking group on Linked In so you can find the perfect match. Once up and running we’ll be posting information on upcoming placements into it.
