Sorting Volunteer Needs
From the Sort By dropdown menu, you can select to sort needs by newest first, oldest first, alphabetically, or soonest first. If you sort by soonest first, the system will only show those needs that are associated with a date; it will not include ongoing needs.
Note: By default, needs are sorted by newest (most recently updated) first.
From the Filter dropdown, you can select to filter needs by the criteria shown below.
Once you've selected a filter, you will be prompted to enter or select criteria to narrow the filter. For example, if you select Interest, you'll need to also select an interest. Click Search to see all needs associated with the interest you selected.
The Age filter includes a "Family Friendly" option for needs that are open to all ages, including children and teens.
A filter by Date will display only those needs that happen on a particular date; it will not include needs that are ongoing or cover a date range.
