Recording Volunteer Hours on the Volunteer Portal 

  1. Log into the volunteer portal.
  2. From your home window, click the "Record Volunteer Hours" button.
  3. From there, click the green button that says "Add Volunteer Record" and then click the "New Volunteer Record" at the bottom of the menu. 
  4. Next you will click the "All Organizations" button and then look to the bottom of the window for the "Add New Organization" button. Type in the organization's name.
  5. Next you will click the all activities button. As a part of the certification requirement, please take a moment to record the hours you spent on your stewardship project. This counts as your first 8 volunteer hours. For subsequent entries, you can choose from the comprehensive list of activities or add in your own activity if needed.
  6. Next you will describe the volunteer activity details such as dates, a short description, duration, miles traveled and location & city of where you volunteered.
  7. Once you have entered in the information, click submit volunteer record and you should receive a confirmation message.

    *For future repeat volunteering, you can simply click the green copy button next to the activity you would like to copy and adjust a few small details such as the date and duration.
