Sign up for Shifts/Tasks
Each volunteer group uses a different system for scheduling but most use Volgistics in some way, which is our volunteer scheduling tool. Once you’ve done your mentoring session and chosen a role you’d like to fulfill, you’ll receive information from the team that manages that activity.
At first, you’ll be designated as a “trainee” with limited tasks available. After you’ve volunteered for awhile, your status will be changed so you can sign up for many other jobs that are posted. We communicate frequently through email distribution lists and you will always know what the needs are on the farm!
Once you have a Volgistics ID, you can seek assistance from the Volunteer System Admin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Saving Grace does not have a direct phone line that is answered by a live person, and all calls go to voicemail. It is always best to use email, as there are multiple volunteers monitoring the various email systems who will respond accordingly.
We’d love your help!
