The benefits of creating your IndependenceFirst volunteer account
We know that volunteers are some of the busiest people around, but the one skill that busy volunteers have is good “time management”. As a Volunteer, you set aside time in your crowded schedule to support a mission or cause that you are passionate about. The time you spend with us is valuable, that is why we are launching a new program that will allow people to create their own virtual volunteer accounts. Once your account is set up, you will have the ability to use the volunteer calendar to find opportunities that fit into your schedule and meet your specific interests or skills. Volunteer groups can also be easily created and managed in the same way.
Your personal or group account will enable you to keep track of volunteer hours, schedule yourself for special events and activities, and get email reminders in advance of your volunteer assignment(s). Finding and scheduling your next volunteer opportunity will be a cinch!
Let’s get started
The first step to becoming a volunteer at IndependenceFirst will be to follow the link below and provide the information to set up your account. You will receive a “Welcome” email upon successfully creating your account. You will then be able to see the various opportunities and special events and get a description of the position requirements/responsibilities. Some volunteer opportunities may require additional screening and/or a background check. If additional screening is required, the program will give you a notification and lead you to the necessary documents.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to set up your volunteer account. We look forward to having you join our team of dedicated volunteers. Just follow this link to get started!
