Volunteers self-register and create an account through your branded EZVolunteer website. You can configure the system with the schools and locations in your district, the types of opportunities your volunteers can select, and the disclosure questions and information you will require them to provide.
Background Check In Real Time
Screen your volunteers when they register and let them know within minutes if they are approved. EZVolunteer sends notifications to your Volunteer Administrator staff when results come back They can review and update the volunteer’s status to Approved or Not Approved in our Background Module and the volunteer is immediately notified of the outcome.
Create one-time or recurring volunteer activities at your schools. Post event on your web-calendar so volunteers can sign-up from there or by signing in to their account. Let volunteers choose when they can work by setting up event shifts schedules. Track who signs-up for an opportunity, which shift they’re attending and how long they volunteered.
Send email notification to your volunteers about upcoming opportunities so they can sign-up, or to remind them where and when to arrive. Choose volunteers to notify based on their interests or affiliation to your school, based on the specific activities for which they signed up.
Record Volunteer Hours
Volunteers can record their own hours by signing in with our campus kiosk, if they are volunteering on campus. You can also setup a volunteer at off-site events to sign-in volunteers or simply have volunteers login to their account on their mobile phone to record hours. Once a volunteer activity is completed coordinators can record hours for all volunteers who signed up.
Sign-In Volunteers & Visitors
If volunteers are coming to your school, rather than an off-site event, you can print a name badge and let them scan-in and out with our Kiosk module – recording their hours as they come and go. You can also sign-in and screen visitors arriving at your school to help ensure the safety of your staff and students.
Track Onsite Personnel
If you have a school lock-down and need to know who’s on campus, aside from staff and students, the Kiosk module can generate an onsite report showing which visitor and volunteers are still present.
Report Activities & Trends
With our reports module you can report on volunteers at a campus or across the district. You can report on the volunteers’ hours and participation in different activities. You can also report on school volunteer activities to see which schools are adding the most volunteers and recording the most hours month-by-month, throughout the year.
