Imagine a metro area where residents seamlessly find and sign up to volunteer for any local organization through one central portal and local organizations can fully engage and manage their volunteers through that same central portal. Thereby creating a sole source of current and relevant volunteer opportunities and trends. The technology exists! Phase 1 is complete (a central hub – i.e., the VH portal), and phase 2 is underway.
VH uses Galaxy Digital’s Get Connected platform. When local organizations also choose to use one of Galaxy Digital’s volunteer management platforms, we collaborate to link their portal with ours enabling us to share data with each other and – more importantly – with local volunteers.
Thank you to the following foundations for their support of Volunteer Houston!
