Use online conferencing to facilitate virtual opportunities

Web conferencing is a great way to connect volunteers and facilitate on-line mentoring, virtual meetings and planning sessions, or to collaborate remotely.

There are a number of web conferencing applications that are available.  Some are free, some have nonprofit discounts. Here's links to a few resources:

Zoom.us - Free and paid plans.

GotoMeeting - here's a link to their free plan.  They also have paid plans.

Webex - Free and paid plans.

You can include the URL and/or Phone Number for web conferences in either the Opportunity Description, or send a link in an email to volunteers you are engaging in web conferencing activities.
