By Lisa McNeil posted 08-01-2020 06:06 AM


A warm welcome to the 121 people that joined the HEUG so far this month! A lot is happening and as a new member, you might be wondering "what is going on"?!

We have more volunteer opportunities than ever!  You can easily search and apply for volunteer opportunities within the HEUG in the Volunteer Module.  There's something for everyone. Opportunities range from a short 1-hour task to more involved ongoing opportunities, so don't worry if you only have a little to give we can still use your help! To get started, just follow these simple steps:

Step 1

Opt-in to the volunteer pool, if you haven't already. This provides us permission to email you when a volunteer opportunity is posted that we think fits you well. If you change your mind later, you can easily update your preference in your profile. 

Get Started!

Step 2

Update your volunteer profile.  Do you know how you opted in for volunteer alerts? Well, we can't email you if we don't know anything about you! In your volunteer profile, you can upload a picture, input a bio of skills you offer and things you enjoy, tell us how far you are willing to travel, etc. The more information you put, the easier we can match you with volunteer opportunities you'll enjoy. 

Step 3

Search for volunteer opportunities.  There are already a variety of volunteer opportunities posted that you could be just right for. Search the opportunities to see how you can help. Big or small, every bit counts!
