Many of our partner agencies only have one ongoing opportunity available for volunteers. This makes volunteer recruitment challenging, because each potential volunteer has a different set of skills, interests and availabilities. By diversifying the opportunities you post on GetConnected, you increase the likelihood that an individual will see and be interested in your organization and volunteer opportunities.
With so many organizations and opportunities to choose from, a potential volunteer may overlook your organization if you only have one opportunity posted. Our top-performing nonprofit agencies consistently have multiple needs listed on their profiles, and they update those needs regularly.
With GetConnected 2.0 it’s even more important that your opportunities are interesting and engaging to volunteers! With our new system, GetConnected users receive an email when a new opportunity is posted by one of the organizations they follow.
