Volunteering these days may look a little different, but the role remains as vital as ever. With strict precautions in place for events to keep COVID-19 at bay, volunteer coordinators are working double time to make sure that all the show’s needs are effectively met while still keeping with protocol. If you have some spare time to lend this weekend at your local event, trust that your time will be much appreciated.

We’ve compiled some resources on volunteering with COVID-19 regulations in mind. We’ll reference this list each week in Volunteer Nation, so take a few moments to familiarize yourself with what’s new and different.
