The new Volunteer Community is now live on cancer.org. This is an online platform for all current and potential volunteers to easily search, view, select, and then sign up for volunteer opportunities with ACS. This platform is part of our larger organizational strategy to manage relationships using Salesforce.
The Volunteer Community is the front door for volunteers to complete training and compliance requirements and track their volunteer hours and recent volunteer history. Volunteers will access the Volunteer Learning Center through the Volunteer Community.
The American Cancer Society's ability to provide available volunteer opportunities is dependent on staff posting available and needed opportunities. This is an opportunity for our organization to offer new and different volunteer opportunities – including in-person and virtual. Volunteers are encouraged to work closely with their staff partners to help pivot to virtual experiences, develop new roles to post on the volunteer community, and find ways to share this new platform with others in their community.
The Volunteer Community Video Guide offers an overview of the basic navigation of the site. If you have any additional questions, please contact the Volunteer Care Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
