Log Volunteer Hours in Voly
I have created some “Opportunities” under J.L. Long for volunteers to go into and put their hours. They can choose the opportunity that best fits the job that they did. Only approved volunteers will be able to go in and submit their hours. I will then go in and approve the hours so that we can get credit for them.
Thank you! Hopefully we can get used to using this system.
