Thanks for your interest! Here's some helpful information about registration.
You need to supply your date of birth because individual volunteers must be 14 years or older to register. Younger volunteers can still volunteer as part of a group.
You need to supply your home city, state, and zip code so that the system can calculate the approximate distance from your home to the volunteer opportunity location. Other address information is helpful, because it allows us to contact you if you change your e-mail address and forget to update it on the site.
While place of employment is optional, it's helpful to know employment status and work location. If you are not employed, you can enter "unemployed", "retired", "student", etc. in this field.
E-mail address is required as we will typically communicate with you via e-mail, and it is used as your login ID. We use your e-mail address to occasionally broadcast volunteer opportunities and to communicate with you about specific opportunities. We only share it with organizations requesting volunteers when we are matching your skills to a specific volunteering opportunity.
The Demographic and Volunteer Options section is optional but very helpful to us when we apply for grants as the grant applications request this type of information. So, please complete this section for us.
Please complete the additional question related to military service and status.
