It is fitting that our first volunteer meeting fell on International Women’s Day because, by chance, our whole team are women. This first meeting was for the volunteers to meet each other and begin to get excited about their volunteering projects. We talked through the history and aims of The Change Exchange project. We discussed theories and methods of health psychology. We talked about data collection and gave out iPads and business cards for communication and data collection.
The volunteers are such an impressive bunch! We have professors, learning and development professionals, experts in qualitative and quantitative research, motivational interviewing etc etc. It was easy to see today that they will form a cohesive group. The future is bright!
