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.
