Volunteers make the best cheerleaders. Our brochures/cards/handouts help them spread the word face to face, but do we give them comparable tools for digital outreach?

Join DIY Social Media Strategist Christine Gritmon and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland's Charlie Pane to learn how to mobile volunteers to share your mission on social media.

Considering all the recent changes to how we connect with one another, there is no better time to start incorporating volunteers into your digital outreach efforts!
