Volunteer Projects vs. Volunteer Opportunities

Friday, January 15, 2010 View Comments Comments (0)
When you open your Volunteer manager to add a volunteer opportunity, you’ll see you’ve got a choice between two groups – Volunteer Projects and Volunteer Opportunities. You’ll ultimately being creating “opportunities” for all the jobs you’d like to assign; the “projects” section is simply a managerial tool that you can use when you create a set of opportunities that are tied together.
For example, let’s say you are seeking workers for various ages in your preschool department. Perhaps your project title would be Preschool Teachers. You complete the fields in Contact, Location, Distribution, Requirements and Search, then scroll to the page bottom, where you’ll see a section to add Volunteer Opportunities to go with this project. The specific opportunities could be Bed Babies Teacher, Toddlers Teacher, Twos Teacher, Threes Teacher, Fours Teacher and Kindergarten Teacher. Thus, you’d create six opportunities to go with this project.
One benefit of creating a project for related opportunities is so that you won’t have to re-enter the contact and location information. Also, as in the case of many other types of projects, should there be a change in a date, location or time, you can update the project information, and choose for the changes to cascade into all the related opportunities.
