Finding opportunities to volunteer couldn’t be easier with Soceana’s web platform. Simply select the “Personalize” sidebar once you have logged into to Soceana, and you will be directed to listings of volunteer opportunities that have been catered to your interests/previous civic duty. If you seek to further narrow down your search for volunteer opportunities, you can filter by skill sets using the Personalize functionality. Whittle down the options by types of volunteering you wish to do and location you seek to do good in, and new nonprofits will pop up that are looking for quality volunteers.
Once you’ve found a volunteer position, simply click the “Volunteer through Soceana” button and you’ll be directed to either the messaging platform, or directly to their website to find volunteer opportunities. This two-level system allows for individuals to get in touch with the organizations they seek to do good at, and promotes a community-build platform by encouraging interaction between the three apexes of our social good triangle.
On the “Personalize” page, users have the opportunity to filter their social good by skill sets - ranging from filing & aperwork to I.T. services. These filters, in addition to location-based search, allow for volunteers to find exactly what they want in a nonprofit, and encourage increased satisfaction on both ends of the conversation.
In order for us to verify your account and for you to be contacted by companies and nonprofits interested in you, it is essential for you to provide an email account. In the future, we will be expanding this to Google, Facebook and LinkedIn sign-in, but currently we require individuals to create their accounts with their email addresses.
In order to access data, metrics and the full features of Soceana, it is required to register as a member/nonprofit/company. This allows for our technology to record and analyze the good that you are doing/propagating. Without an account, individuals won’t have tracked and recorded hours and Soceana won’t be able to provide them with the services that they are seeking.
If you have gone through the sign-up process and still have not received a verification email, please drop us a line at email@example.com. We’ll get back to you within 48 hours.
