Once you have recruited volunteers, they will need to be trained on the process of conducting the VI-SPDAT.

We recommend that this training occur the weekend before your Registry Week starts so that the process is fresh in their mind. In this section of the Toolkit, there are slide decks that were used in volunteer trainings in Ottawa.

  1. Please see an example of a training presentation given in Ottawa. Note that the basic content of the training should be as follows:
    1. An Introduction to the 20,000 Homes Campaign
    2. Local Context
    3. Discussion of what a Registry Week is and what the week will look like
    4. If desired, an overview of:
      1. Collective Impact
      2. Housing First
    5. The VI SPDAT
      1. Surveying Dos and Don’ts (see the Surveying Dos and Don’ts document)
      2. Review the consent form (below)
      3. Review the survey question by question with the volunteers
      4. Have volunteers practice the survey in groups of two
    6. Reviewing their survey packet (please see below for what is included in the survey packet)
  1. Additionally, you will need to have every volunteer sign a confidentiality agreement. Please see the following forms: 20,000 Homes Sample Oath of Confidentiality, Media Release Form, Waiver and Release Form
