March 17, 2021 COVID-19 and Volunteerism Survey Results and Intro to the Project Prioritization Rubric - EMG Coordinators Discussion


COVID-19 and Volunteerism

Survey Results and Intro to the Project Prioritization Rubric

This presentation will focus on:

  • the background and results of the COVID-19 and Volunteerism Survey conducted in California.
  • how to use this information to prioritize EMG programs.

Presenters will introduce the Project Prioritization Rubric they developed, and will discuss the rubric during the April 21st EMG Coordinators Discussion.


  • National and statewide data indicate that COVID-19 has significantly impacted volunteer commitment for the 2020-2021 program year (and may continue to impact volunteer commitment thereafter).
  • The number of projects and initiatives may need to be limited until volunteer commitment can be restored to a pre-COVID-19 level.
  • Coordinators have indicated that a rubric for scoring projects would help them strategically plan in the β€œnew normal.”

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event. If this is an Extension Foundation hosted event - we will update this calendar listing with a link to the recording usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system. While we encourage them to update their listings with recordings, it is entirely up to them.

How do I know if it is an Extension-hosted event?

eXtension posts publicly our events to two calendars - the Extension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top.

What if I have trouble accessing this webinar?

Please contact the author of this calendar event. The individual that posted this event will have their username automatically listed at the bottom of the body of their post, right above the social media buttons. When you hover over that name, you are able to send them a private message.
