“Celebrate Service” is the theme for the 2018 National Volunteer Week (April 15-21). During the 45th annual observance of this national celebration, EZVolunteer wants to help your school recruit volunteers for the many events and programs for the duration of this school year.

Does your school have lots of registered volunteers? Are you getting all the attendance you need at your events? Can your volunteers easily sign-up for both the activity and time when they can help?

Volunteers want to participate, but you have to tell them where and when you need their help. EZVolunteer solves this problem first by letting a volunteer choose the activities they are interested in, so you can notify just those folks most willing to help with your activities.

Next you can send email blasts to targeted lists of volunteers or all volunteers at your school and let them sign-up for your activity. Using our Forms module, you can setup shift assignments with the times you need help, limiting the number of volunteers required on each shift.

Volunteers can add an event to their personal Outlook or Gmail calendar and EZVolunteer will send them a reminder 24-hours before the event starts, improving the chances that everyone who signed-up shows-up. The event coordinator can send last minute emails to volunteers and keep track of who shows up and when – all from their mobile device.

Please take the time to thank and recognize the many school volunteers that enter your building on a daily basis this week. Interested in learning more about EZVolunteerUSE THIS LINK to schedule an online meeting soon so you can see how EZVolunteer can help with volunteer recruitment.
