My agency has never used the Volunteer Portal

If your agency has never used the Volunteer Portal and is in need of volunteers, you can either follow these steps to post your opportunity or email Patricia Alger, Program Assistant, Volunteer Services:

  • Agency name, staff contact name, email, and phone (contact person who is managing the volunteer opportunity)
  • Volunteer opportunity name (example “Food Drive Coordinator”)
  • Volunteer opportunity description (describe the type of work they will be doing, and whether they can drop in or if they need to contact the coordinator first)
  • The physical address of opportunity
  • Minimum age of volunteers
  • Minimum age of volunteers with adults
  • Please provide a Spanish translation of the above information if applicable (our portal is available to Spanish speakers)
  • You may also include a link to your own volunteer sign-up page/website if you prefer

Once your opportunity is posted, Patricia will send you a confirmation and set up your username and password which gives you access to the portal to makes changes yourself. Reminder: the portal gives you direct access to volunteers available to volunteer for your opportunity!


My agency is already using the Volunteer Portal

If you are already using the volunteer portal?

Go to your County’s Portal:
Sonoma County (sonoma.cvnl.org), Napa County (volunteer.cvnl.org), Solano County (solano.cvnl.org) & Marin County (volunteer.cvnl.org)
