GET CONNECTED

 

Get Connected is ServeOhio's state-of-the art volunteer management platform that connects Ohio volunteers to opportunities in their local community. Built on the Galaxy Digital platform, Get Connected allows volunteer administrators to post volunteer opportunities to recruit volunteers in their local community, which then feeds directly into the statewide system. Volunteers can then search for opportunities that best match their skills and interests. 

 

Get Connected to Volunteer Opportunities

ServeOhio recently launched a new statewide volunteer engagement platform, Get Connected, the first statewide volunteer portal in Ohio. The COVID-19 pandemic and recent events taking place over the past several months made the need for a system like this even more pressing, as local service has never been more important.

Get Connected is ServeOhio's state-of-the art volunteer management platform that connects Ohio volunteers to opportunities in their local community. Built on the Galaxy Digital platform, Get Connected provides volunteer administrators a management system to post volunteer opportunities, recruit volunteers in their local community, and manage their volunteers all within the platform. Volunteers can search for opportunities that best match their skills and interests.
