"Issues" episode 3: How COVID-19 has impacted volunteering in Maine
The responses to the "The Impact of COVID-19 on Volunteering" survey, conducted by the Data Innovation Project on behalf of Volunteer Maine, reveal "that COVID-19 volunteering at (the responding agencies) organization’s decreased and some opportunities were severely limited."
In the third episode of our interview series, "Issues," Sarah Goan, director of the Data Innovation Project, and Kelsey Preecs, program officer for volunteer initiatives at Volunteer Maine, walk viewers through the findings. They also look at how the responses can be used to help nonprofit volunteer programs recover and evolve to deliver services to their respective communities across Maine.
