To Request Volunteers:

Please use these guidelines when considering whether to submit a volunteer request for your event.


 


Volunteer Request Guidelines

Single Volunteers Boston (SVB) is not your ordinary volunteer group. In addition to providing nonprofits with hard-working volunteers, SVB also tries to provide volunteers with opportunities to work closely with other Single Volunteers. We therefore have the following guidelines that must be met before we can accept volunteer requests.

  • Organizations must request a minimum of 10 SVB volunteers for each project. (Please estimate your volunteer needs accurately.  SVB has a low rate of volunteer cancellations so there is no need to overestimate.)
  • SVB Volunteers must work together in groups of at least 3-4 people.
  • SVB Volunteers are “one time” volunteers only. If organizations need volunteers for multiple days, SVB can provide volunteers for each day but SVB will not provide organizations with the same volunteers for each day.
  • SVB volunteers can attend orientation sessions only if that orientation immediately precedes the event.
  • Volunteer projects should last between 3-5 hours. Organizations with longer event should ask for shifts of volunteers instead of using one group all day long.
  • Organizations offering food, beverages, t-shirts or any other "perks" to volunteers should let SVB know.   Perks are not necessary (most events do not have them), but signups tend to be better if we announce perks when they are available.

 


 

All volunteer requests will be treated seriously and, whenever possible, SVB will attempt to accommodate organizations’ requests. When SVB is unable to accommodate requests due to scheduling constraints, SVB will try to setup an alternate project/date.
