Sign Up


The Sign Up Process occurs in 3 major steps:

  1. Enter your agency's name. (This step ensures that someone else in your organization has not already entered your information.)

  2. Click "Sign Up!" at the end of this page, you will be asked for more detailed information about your agency.

    Please Note: To register or post opportunities, you have to fill out a form on the website. We strongly recommend you open the form but type your responses into a Word document first so you can save them. Then copy/paste the information into the website form. Although you can click "Save and Continue" as you fill out the registration form and opportunity forms, the information doesn't actually save until the form has been completed and submitted to the administrator.  The website provides "feedback" if you have misspelled words or left some of the form blank. However, as long as you have completed all required sections (marked with a red asterisk) you should be able to move forward by clicking the "Continue" button.

  3. After filling out the information about your agency, you can fill out information for as many volunteer opportunities or events that you have. These opportunities and events are essential for volunteers to find out about your agency. At least one volunteer opportunity posting is required. All one-time opportunities are automatically shown on the monthly calendar.

The signup process should take approximately 15 minutes provided that you have all the information listed below available.

Before starting, make sure you have the following information on hand:

  • Primary agency contact's up-to-date email, phone number and address

  • Password for your agency to later update their information

  • Employer Identification Number (EIN)

  • Agency's Mission statement

  • Agency description of services statement

  • Coordinator's name, phone and address for each listing

  • Title of listings, descriptions, and dates (where applicable)
