If at all possible meet FTF even if it’s zoom
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
49:02
yes, encourage videos! great suggestion Betsy
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS

Great point Betsy, especially since we are doing so much contact via Zoom. We need to focus on the individual and making more connections to develop our relationships with them.

Congrats Tom!! :) Thank you for all that you do!
Betsy Skipp

Many of our new advocates do not live close to each other so connection is essential as it is with all relationships
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
53:48
Absolutely Betsy! I live about 1.5 hrs. away from my group so the relationship building is really important.
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
54:57
Each one, teach one is a fabulous model! Thanks Lynne!
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
57:21
a lobby meeting is one of the most impactful actions you can help a new volunteer achieve!
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
58:33
When I first joined 5 years ago, I would not have spoken up without the support and encouragement of my group leaders and group members!
Lisa Marchal
59:48
Did you know we have a bank of laser talks? https://results.org/volunteers/laser-talks
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:00:32
That is a fantastic suggestion Lynne!
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:02:06
Great suggestion Alicia!
Lisa Marchal
01:02:53
Other members of your group can be great coaches and teachers - it doesn't always have to fall to the Group Leader!
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
01:03:00
+1 to that Lisa!
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
01:03:04
Absolutely Lisa!
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:03:42
+1 Lisa
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:04:11
Great point Lynne, it's important to have those conversations on where the volunteer's interests and goals are and how they align with the issues at hand
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
01:05:20
great ideas and experiences, thanks
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
01:06:09
Definitely Betsy, there's a conversation to be had about how poverty can cause mental health issues to deteriorate when they're trying to find resources. They all intersect! We're fixing the root of the issue, I feel like.
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
01:06:15
so many of these issues are intersectional!
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
01:07:30
so important to take that intentional pause, Lisa! thanks for reminding us of that.
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:08:04

01:10:08
Congrats!
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her

That's wonderful!
Betsy Skipp

Just think of the impact we’ve had on BBB, housing, CTC etc. it’s a celebration
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:11:09
+1 Betsy, so much work on that Housing letter, got it back on the table!
Lynne Patalano
01:11:58
At one point my group used to celebrate “letters submitted”, not just the “letters published”… “emails sent” and not just “emails answered by the MoC….
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
01:12:07
that's great Lynne!
Lynne Patalano
01:12:51
Our group (before being virtual)… often had cakes to celebrate at our monthly calls
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:12:57
That's a great idea Lynne! A lot of times we don't control what gets published, but the work and courage in submitting the letter is so important!
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
01:13:34
I love that Lila!
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:13:54
