Prerequisite Opportunity: HandsOn Connect Agency Training
Skill Category - N/A
HandsOn Connect Agency Training
Volunteer Alexandria's HandsOn Connect website offers a unique opportunity for nonprofits, city agencies, and schools to post their volunteer needs directly to our site. Agencies can post ongoing, one time, general, or skills based volunteer opportunities. Once a volunteer opportunity is posted, volunteers can be recruited and managed directly on our site.
Volunteer Alexandria is hosting a HandsOn Connect Agency training on August 23, 2016, 8:30-10:30 a.m.. for those individuals who use the Volunteer Alexandria's HandsOn Connect database with their organization to post volunteer opportunties. This is a FREE training, as we want our agency partners to be able to use our system effectively.
Topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to:
- Logging in to the system
- Updating agency information
- Creating volunteers opportunities
- Managing volunteer opportunities
We recommend bringing your volunteer opportunity ideas and any specific questions you might have about using the HandsOn Connect system. If you have a laptop with access to WiFi, you are more than welcome to bring it. We do not have laptops for agencies to use in the office, or WiFi in the room the presentation will be occurring.
We ask that individuals planning on attending the training register so we have know who is coming. To do so, please check to see if your organization is registered with Volunteer Alexandria here. If your organization is not registered, please register here. We will then be able to grant you portal access. If your organization is registered, but you do not have portal access as an individual, please contact 703-836-2176 to be added to your organization.
Registration will close 12 hours in advance. Any individuals who plan to attend must register in advance.
Coffee will be provided!
