For the first time in DuPagePads’ 28 year history, volunteers will be able to complete an online volunteer training program at their own convenience. This volunteer training program was made possible as a result of a grant from the Spirit of Volunteerism Fund of The DuPage Community Foundation. Beginning January 6, 2014, volunteers will be able to log into the DuPagePads website and learn about the agency mission to end homelessness, programs and services provided, best practices in risk management, volunteer roles and responsibilities and more.
“We know that we could not provide all of our services without the tremendous support of our volunteers. The information and skills learned in the training modules will empower volunteers and give them the tools they need to be confident and successful while providing flexibility to complete the training at a convenient time for them,” said Carol Simler, DuPagePads’ Executive Director.
