Cheers to Collin County for Using VolunteerSpot's Free Volunteer Scheduling Software!
Since its opening in 1969, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County made a point to be a place where children could better themselves and reach their fullest potential. The organization still strongly stands by its original mission to help boys and girls in the area and uses VolunteerSpot to carry out their activities.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Our organization’s volunteer needs have a very wide range! Volunteers support afterschool programs, annul events, special projects and programs and so much more!
Explain how you use VolunteerSpot to recruit and coordinate these volunteers.
We use VolunteerSpot to fill ALL of the organization’s volunteer needs! Whenever we are in need of volunteers we create a sign up sheet and then place the sharable link in our volunteer newsletter along with a brief summary of the volunteer opportunities/tasks. The reports available on VolunteerSpot make it easy to coordinate volunteers and track hours for each event!
We also have a VolunteerSpot button on our website, which allows anyone who visits our site to have access to current volunteer opportunities.
Why did you decide to use VolunteerSpot?
It was the only system that truly thought of everything! We can do everything – from creating sign ups, communicating with volunteers, tracking hours, to even sending a thank you for all of their hard work!
What’s one piece of advice you have for volunteers or their leaders out there?
One piece of advice I would give volunteers/leaders would be a quote from Gandhi – “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” And utilize tools that will help you do so, tools like VolunteerSpot!
5 What else would you like our readers to know about Boys and Girls Clubs or volunteering?
Volunteers play a vital role in supporting nonprofits, such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County and we truly could not achieve our mission if it weren’t for the dedicated individual who we know and love as volunteers!
We salute Collin County and all the other volunteers making a difference in their communities. Check out how VolunteerSpot’s Volunteer Software can save you time and stress and boost parent involvement in your school. Take a tour today!
