Volunteering is more fun with a group, so here's how to go about signing up a team of volunteers.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Step 1: Register
To sign up for projects or express interest to get contact information on opportunities, you must first be registered on this site.
Step 2: Create a Team
After you've completed the registration process, visit the My Account section of our site, and follow the Create a New Team link on the left of the page. Enter in your team name, description, privacy, affiliation (if applicable), and your team member's names, email addresses, phone numbers and ages. Please assign the appropriate team captain who will oversee the team's coordination and participation.
Please note that if you are adding children to your team that are under the age of 13, only use a parent or guardian's phone number for their contact information. Please leave the email field blank. Under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act we are unable to store email addresses for children under the age of 13.
Step 3: Find Volunteer Opportunities
Using our search feature or browsing our Project Calendar find a project that has the appropriate number of spaces available for your team. Please note that unless a team volunteer limit is communicated in the description of a project, Team Captains are able to reserve no more than 50% of the slots on Hands On Calendar Projects
Step 4: Express Interest/Sign Up
Depending upon the type of project you select, you will be given the choice to:
Express Interest the community organization will contact you directly with further information about the opportunity and how to sign up. An automated e-mail will also be sent to you, with contact information for the community organization, so that you can follow up with them if you do not get a response. Sign Up, choose "Or Sign Up With A Team" to the right of the Sign Up button. On the next page you will choose which team you want to sign up. You will be automatically signed up for that project and will receive a confirmation e-mail containing all of the information you will need. Be sure to only sign up members of your team who have confirmed they will attend the project.
HOW TO MODIFY OR REMOVE YOUR TEAM
As the team captain you will be able to modify your team by logging in, and visiting the My Account section of our site. Under Upcoming Opportunities you will see the projects your team is signed up for. To remove members from a project, click on Manage My Team under the Action/Status category. Deselect members of your team that will not be able to participate, and click "Submit" when you are done.
