The HVO E-Volunteering Initiative offers new and innovative ways to extend our global health mission and to systematically track HVO volunteers’ ongoing engagement and impact at project sites.
We know that many HVO volunteers remain actively engaged with sites long after their assignments end, providing remote mentoring, research support, curricula development, case consultation, etc. through email, Skype and other web-based technologies. We want to learn from this remote engagement so that successful programming can be replicated or adapted to other settings. We also want to measure this added impact of HVO e-volunteers.
As we launch this new initiative, we aim to extend the impact of HVO’s teaching and training model by incorporating e-volunteering into our efforts, and we look forward to partnering with you on this effort.
Potential e-volunteers can contact the appropriate HVO volunteer placement coordinator for their specialty to learn more. More information is also available on the HVO KnowNET.
