Opportunity Description:

Weekly Caller Weekly Callers phone a list of 20 interested people with sight loss once a week to let them know about upcoming events. Over time, the volunteers get to know the people they’re calling and can tailor their calls to individuals (i.e. John never wants to attend a Trivia Night, etc.). At least 60% of our virtual event attendance comes from these calls.   Virtual Event Assistant Duties Virtual Event Assistants login to CNIB Nova Scotia’s virtual events 20 minutes before they start and assist by using the Zoom platform to individually connect people into the event. Typically there are 4 to 6 virtual events being offered per month. You will RSVP for the ones you’re available to help with and will be needed for two minutes before they start.
