Imagine this scenario: After extensive planning and discussion with your nonprofit partner, you finally iron out the details for an upcoming, large-scale volunteer event.

Your partner makes it clear what their needs for the awaited day are: in terms of volunteers, they expect 10 people in the morning and 10 in the afternoon. Within these groups, half will work directly with the nonprofit’s clients and the other half will prep materials “behind the scenes”.

Fantastic! But as your company’s volunteer manager, how do you go about signing up volunteers for this event while ensuring you have the right amount of people to fit each time slot and role?

That’s where volunteer shifts come in.

Volunteer shifts is a brand new feature from VolunteerMatch’s employee volunteer management platform, YourMatch™. For the first time, corporate volunteer managers can easily manage multiple shifts within one overarching volunteer opportunity on YourMatch.

Corporate volunteer program managers may struggle with aligning group volunteer events with employees’ schedules and interests. Volunteer shifts gives employees the freedom to sign up for a volunteer event as it best fits their preferences, without you having to manually manage individual schedules. Take a look at what volunteer shifts looks like for your employees.
