When I first started at United Way five years ago our Volunteer Connection website was in serious need of some TLC:
Since then, we’ve learned a lot about what volunteers are looking for, and the best ways to help them find it. And now we're very excited to announce we’ve upgraded our site with some cool new features and a pretty re-design that should help you find great volunteer opportunities in our community -- just in time for National Volunteer Month!
We're currently having a housewarming party at www.VolunteerUWGC.org and you are all invited! Take the new site for a spin -- we hope you love our new digs as much as we do! If you have any questions, or would like a “tour” please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s a quick overview of our favorite features:
|Details at a glance. The re-designed signup page makes information easy to review, so you can quickly decide to sign up, or keep browsing with the new recommendations bar.|
|Custom Alerts. Be the first to know when new or upcoming opportunities match your interests.|
|Your Activities. Quickly see what you’ve signed up for in the past, and keep track of hours for school, work or fun!|
|More Recommendations. New quick search boxes and monthly features help you find popular and relevant opportunities, right from the homepage.|
