Oh great. That’s the fifth voicemail in a row. Why won’t they just pick up?
We know what it’s like- we’ve been there too. As experienced volunteers, we have sometimes called thirty nonprofits before even getting a reply. We understand firsthand the frustrating and time-consuming process that volunteering is, so we sought to solve this issue.
For volunteers we have created a “common app” that will allow volunteers to only have to make ONE application for ALL nonprofits. In addition, by simply swiping right, you are able to quickly send your application to the nonprofit, saving you time and energy that you would have spent calling or emailing for actual volunteering!
Sigh. It’s difficult managing a team of volunteers and recruiting more volunteers at the same time. There’s just not enough staff to go! It makes me wonder: Where are all the dedicated volunteers? How do we reach these volunteers? Is there a way to vet these applicants? And lastly,
CAN SOMEONE PICK UP THE PHONE?!
By having a mobile platform, you don’t need someone to answer calls and emails- you can simply get an alert on your phone when a new volunteer applies for a position and you can quickly view his resume and approve/decline his request. This way, there are no more missed opportunities for volunteers and nonprofits.
We have also created the ability to advertise on our platform for a much lower rate than traditional advertising agencies. We also have a featured page that can generate even more interest and get your nonprofit the attention it deserves!
Hi! My name is Praneeth and I am a junior at Episcopal Academy. Service has always been something that I have done, whether with friends or family. I truly value the teamwork aspect of service, as service has allowed me the ability to foster deep meaningful relationships with others all through our shared interest in making small changes with large lasting effects. LET’S SERV!
Hi! My name is Justin and I am a senior at the William Penn Charter School. I became hooked on service work because I love the genuine connections that I am able to make with people of all backgrounds. When I am not doing service, I love to listen to rap, skateboard, and find cool restaurants to try out. I am so excited to SERV my community!
