Empower your team to serve the community
Volunteering in Nashville Information Session
Hands On Nashville is happy to provide an informational session (virtual or in-person) about volunteering. These sessions typically last 45-60 minutes and include an overview of Hands On Nashville’s mission, why it’s important to volunteer, how to create a volunteer account and sign up for volunteer projects, and what to expect at a volunteer project. Of course, we can also customize the content specifically for your team.
Disaster Volunteer Leader training with your team
When disaster strikes, Hands On Nashville partners with the city of Nashville to provide volunteers for cleanup and community support. We rely on trained Disaster Volunteer Leaders to coordinate these efforts, extending the reach of HON staff to make our disaster response as effective and efficient as possible. From leading volunteers as they clear debris to helping our communications team respond to the public, we need leaders like you to help HON meet the unforeseen needs of survivors in our community.
This 90-minute training will cover:
- HON’s disaster responsibilities and disaster response program
- Your role
- Volunteer leadership
- Standard operating procedures
- What to expect before, during, and after a disaster occurs
After signing up, make sure your skills profile is up to date by clicking here. Pay close attention to the Disaster Response section of the form.
Disaster Volunteer Leaders were crucial to HON’s response efforts following the tornado, bombing, and floods – DVL’s will continue to be vital whenever the next disaster strikes. Thank you for being part of the team that helps Nashville come together when we need each other the most!
Let us survey your team to find out their volunteer hopes and dreams! We’ll send you over a report summarizing the results, so you can plan accordingly.
