Golden State Divisional Headquarters

We're sorry, but this opportunity is in the past and online registration is closed for this opportunity. You may select a different opportunity, or you may contact the volunteer coordinator to see if any other opportunities are available in your area.


Are you interested in learning more about being an Emergency & Disaster Services Volunteer? Join us for this 4 Part Series which teaches how to interact with, and accommodate needs based on cultural and religious diversity during a disaster. This Webinar is a part 4 series and is intended to be taken as a unit. We encourage you to register for as many Parts of this Series as possible for maximum benefit.

With a rise in major natural disasters in recent years, people have an increased desire to help but few know how. We are hosting a series of training webinars to explain the role volunteer organizations play in a major disaster and to understand what it means to volunteer effectively during a disaster response. The trainings can be taken as standalone trainings or a series.



Faith-based and community organizations are key partners in creating a culture of disaster preparedeness. They offer a wide variety of resources that are invaluable during and after an incident. Join us to learn:

  • What is "religious and cultural literacy and competency in disaster management"?

  • How religious and cultural language differs from government culture and language?

  • What skills are needed to competently engage religious and cultural leaders and groups in the field?

  • The 6 steps in the “LEADER” process.


  • PART 1 - Thursday 3/4/21, 4pm - 5:30pm (Pacific)

  • PART 2 - Thursday 3/11/21, 4pm - 5:30pm (Pacific)

  • PART 3 - Thursday 3/18/21, 4pm - 5:30pm (Pacific)

  • PART 4 - Thursday 3/25/21, 4pm - 5:30pm (Pacific)


Anyone interested in learning more about becoming an Emergency & Disaster Services Volunteer.

By completing this or any future trainings, you are not committing to being deployed during a disaster, nor is The Salvation Army implying that you will be deployed.
