Read about a few of our happy higher education customers:

Events like Welcome Week, Homecoming and new student Orientation can bring together a unique and sometimes complex blend of community, faculty and student volunteers. VolunteerLocal provides an array of benefits to help any department leverage an on-campus volunteer force for programming throughout the year. Our system is also well-suited for service-learning initiatives; we feature a communication broadcast tool that allows coordinators to engage pupil volunteers in meaningful dialogue before, during and after the community service.


With VolunteerLocal, you can create multiple signups for different volunteer groups (e.g. students, community members and on-campus organizations) and customize the registration form for each page to collect the corresponding data you need from each group. Export volunteer hours, student ID numbers and organization names to measure your volunteer impact, and add locations to shifts for events that span across campus. Turn on social plug-ins so volunteers can share your event on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. When you're ready to go live, wrap the signup page in the look-and-feel of your existing website for a seamless registration experience.

We used to coordinate all 240 volunteer shifts for the Iowa Craft Beer tent using a giant excel spreadsheet with hundreds of blacked-out and empty cells--we called it 'the Soduku Puzzle.' I also had a PDF document that I manually updated every three hours. It was a nightmare. Plus we were left with about 70 extra t-shirts after our first appearance at the State Fair because we didn't have an efficient way to record that information. VolunteerLocal has really improved the registration process for us. Our VolunteerLocal page went live at 8:00am on May 1st. In one hour, 140 spots were gone. After one day, I think there were only 18 spots left. Probably saved me about 100 hours of labor and I was able to customize my registration page to collect information on t-shirt sizes and colors. It was great. No leftover t-shirts, no Soduku Puzzles.
