Become a Virtual Host

Virtual hosts comprise dozens of community members who are passionate about ending child abuse and eager to share our mission with their community. They are vital to the event’s success. Virtual hosts invite guests to join them at this event and into their personal breakout rooms.

How will Family & Children’s Place Support Virtual Hosts?

  • Provide you with a digital Save-the-Date (downloads below) as well as other content to use to invite, track RSVPs, and thank your guests.
  • Provide you with training so you feel confident speaking about the mission of Family & Children’s Place and making “the ask.”
  • Check-in’s to support your efforts in inviting and communicating with guests.
  • Provide you with a virtual breakout room guide for hosting your guests during the event.
  • Acknowledge your hard work at the virtual event.
