Please read all the information here very carefully.
Once you have provided complete information on your Profile Questions and have RSVP'd here, you are ready to begin Orientation.
Ignore the times (hours) above. We have to put in a time to get this orientation notice on this site. The times are for administrative use only.
You are to read* the online orientation information thoroughly and at your own pace. This online orientation contains all the information needed before you begin participating in the SSR Calendar events.
(*Note: We now have an auditory component for some sections of the Orientation for those who absorb more information listening to information.)
The SSR orientation consists of reading the information here on this page AND the material on our Calendar website (See link below in STEP 3.)
It is REQUIRED that you complete the 4 orientation steps as listed below prior to participating in any SSR Calendar event.
Please read all the information provided here carefully. There is no meeting. There is no webinar. There are videos you can watch on your own time. Volunteers may complete this process at their own pace; however, volunteers must complete the process before the end of the day on which they have RSVP'd.
IMPORTANT: Please read all the orientation materials and afterwards sign the Affirmation Statement BEFORE the date for which you have "RSVPed" above. You will find the Affirmation Statement at the end of our orientation website.
Follow these 4 easy steps to complete the online orientation process:
STEP 1: Fill out the Profile Questions completely on this Meetup site. (If you are reading this, you probably have done so. If you need to check to make sure you have filled out all information fully, please do so before going on to STEP 2.)
STEP 2: RSVP for Orientation on this Meetup site. (Remember, there is NO meeting.)
STEP 3: Read and study the information at our new website:
(Hold down the Control key and click the link to launch the website in a new window).
STEP 4: Now that you have completed reading the orientation information at the above noted site thoroughly, SIGN the AFFIRMATION STATEMENT.
After you have completed the 4 steps above, look for a note from our Volunteer Coordinator through Meetup Messages. Our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to welcome you and to explain how you must make your first visit. We require that your first visit be at a site with experienced volunteers. The choice of event is yours; however, you must attend an event with experienced volunteers.
Our Volunteer Coordinator will record that you have met the requirement of carefully reading the orienting materials after you have completed STEP 4. You may always check your attendance in My Profile (Meetup site). See "View attendance history."
Rating your visits:
After each visit, we encourage you to write a review of your experience. Your review will let others know what to expect at a site and, we hope, encourage others to attend. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have a comment about an uncommon negative experience, please do not include this in your review. (All volunteers will see this!)
Please send your specific concerns to Linda Pattison (schools) and Dawn Friedel (libraries). We will address the concern promptly. Thank you.
If you have questions about this service for orienting new volunteers, please contact Linda, Dawn, or Janice. Thank you for your interest in the SSR Calendar read events! We hope to see you participating soon in the events!!
