How do I add volunteer hours?

A: Click the Add Hours button add-hours

● Enter the organization’s contact information (organization the student volunteered for):
Name of Organization, Supervisor (Contact Name), Contact Email, Contact Phone

● Add in a Description of Community Involvement (e.g. This week I focused on organizing canned foods from the food drive)

● Select Skills Learned. If a skill is not listed, add your own skills! Just type it in.

● Enter the Start and Completion Date of the volunteer activity

● Add the Total Hours volunteered

● Check off and verify that this activity meets your school board’s guidelines and eligibility criteria for community involvement before submitting hours [NOTE: Click on the guidelines and eligibility criteria link to view the criteria].

Save or Submit volunteer hours
If a student selects Save, then they can continue editing the form and submit when ready. Students can edit and save forms as often as necessary (e.g. hourly, daily, weekly)

When a student selects Submit, the organization and parent will receive an email and will be asked to verify and comment on the hours and activities.  Once verified, the organization simply selects a Accept or Decline button in the message.

TIPS
  • Teachers can also Save and Approve hours on behalf of a student.
  • To find out if volunteer hours are eligible for community involvement hours, students can click the Guidelines  button on the  Volunteer Dashboard.
