We’re tracking the time volunteers spend on tasks through a game! Understanding the hours you contribute will allow us to KNOW how much time any job really takes, and therefore be better able to manage manpower in the future. In addition, this information helps us apply to grants and other types of financial support.
It’s incredibly EASY. Please log your volunteer hours spent here:
