OneMorgan County sponsors collaborations between diverse groups in the community. OMC links volunteers with program participants for one-on-one mentoring in a variety of areas. WE includes community activities for relationship-building among Fort Morgan residents.
Volunteers will be expected to commit at least three hours each month. However, the more time you give, the more successful your experience will be at Wayfinders’ Endeavor. The time and date you volunteer will be up to each individual schedule.
Volunteers will independently keep track of volunteer hours and will be responsible for reporting hours to OMC each month.
TRAININGS/ ORGANIZATIONAL MEETINGS
In order to have effective volunteers, OMC holds mandatory orientation training. Orientation will discuss OMC’s policies and procedures as well as the basics of what to expect as a volunteer.
OMC also holds monthly meetings with volunteers to ensure their satisfaction with the program and offer advice for any concerns that arise. These meetings will alter between one-on-one to group support meetings.
Meeting areas will be at the Fort Morgan library or the OneMorgan County office, however if it is more convenient for volunteers to have a specific meeting location that can be arranged.
Program evaluations are key to finding out what we are doing well and what needs to be improved on. Evaluations of the participant will be necessary to gage their progress in our programs helping us with program development and volunteer evaluations will assist OMC with program structure. We will need your assistance in conducting these evaluations throughout your time volunteering with us.
PLACEMENT WITH PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS
Volunteers will be matched with program participants based on assessment of preferences and availability. In cases of vulnerable program members such as youth, additional procedures, such as background checks, may be necessary. Volunteers who refuse permission to conduct background checks in these cases will not be placed with program members.OMC sponsors collaborations between diverse groups in the community.
