Nonprofit Partners on BASE!
Friends, we’re so excited about this new season with BASE, Love Out Loud’s new online volunteering platform and its great potential for, not only increasing volunteer engagement in our community, but also as a tool (along with Love Out Loud’s PATHWAYS program) to assist individuals in finding their unique FIT, serving in your organizations.
We’re thankful to you for jumping in early and helping us build BASE with your volunteer opportunities and wanted to share with you our timeline for launching and some tools as you continue:
Below is our BASE Rollout Timeline. This summer we are working hard to develop and curate the content on our sites – assisting you in building opportunities (both first-serve “foot in the door” opportunities and long-term engagement), adding events, and learning all the great functions BASE has to offer. In addition, we’re “soft launching” to volunteer users that attend our Venture Café Sessions (like the one tomorrow night) and other recent attendees of Love Out Loud trainings. We’re working to build the engine so when we do launch to the wider community there are plenty timely, compelling, opportunities in a broad range of passions and interests. *In this pre-phase, feel free to invite your current volunteers to sign up for your (or other opportunities) on BASE – and know more volunteers are to come from our broad networks.
Adding Opportunities and Events. One of our biggest goals with BASE is to curate opportunities and events that meet an individuals desired PASSION and CAUSE (the things they are passionate about) and INTERESTS and SKILLS (the ways they serve) – we’ve edited these on our site this week to best represent a broad spectrum of what you do – so be sure to check out your profile for new options! Check out this video to learn how to best create and designate your volunteer opportunities (or this blog).
Tell Us How We’re Doing. We’re looking forward to partnering with you through this platform and helping individuals engage with your programs. Please fill out this survey (every couple weeks, or as often as you need) to let us know what’s working well and what could be better on BASE. If you have any questions or need more immediate assistance feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re looking forward to continue to engage volunteers alongside you and for the great season to come!
