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.
Getting2Tri just hosted a first ever, paratriathlon training event in Charlotte, NC (last weekend). We used VolunteerLocal for the volunteer registration, management of jobs/shifts, and timely communications. The feedback was incredible! I can't tell you how many volunteers came up to me and commented how easy it was to register and know exactly what they were supposed to be doing. Thanks for having such a great product. - Mike Lenhart, Getting2Tri
