      I used to volunteer at Tree of Life and would like to get more involved again – how can I plug back in?

      If you have attended a Volunteer Introduction Program (VIP) session in the past, just email your Regional Coordinator. They will activate your volunteer profile and help you find the ministry that is right for you! If you have not attended a VIP, please click here to sign up for one of our monthly sessions.


      I'm having trouble viewing and changing my volunteer schedule on VolunteerEasy; how do I make sure I'm signed up for the right times?

      First, log in at https://www.volunteereasy.com. This takes you to your personal dashboard for volunteering. On the left of the screen, click OPPORTUNITIES then VIEW MY SIGNUPS. This will take you to a list of all the active volunteer opportunities that you are currently approved to work for. You can view and update your schedule by clicking the VIEW/ADD SCHEDULE button listed next to each opportunity, which will bring up your current schedule window (if you have set a schedule). On the View Schedule window, you can click “view dates” to see what you have already signed up for; use the EDIT button to change any of those dates.

      Your VolunteerEasy Schedule



      I would like to volunteer with my children but they are too young to manage their own VolunteerEasy profile – what is the best way for me to sign them up and let TOL know they will be with me when I volunteer?

      A great way for families to volunteer together is to register as a team! This allows parents to manage their children’s volunteer schedule and ensures the Ministry Leader knows you are coming as a family and not as an individual. To register as a team, go to the VolunteerEasy site for the applicable Tree of Life region:

      Purcellville: https://www.volunteereasy.com/site/PurcellvilleVA20132

      Leesburg: https://www.volunteereasy.com/site/LeesburgVA20176

      Sterling: https://www.volunteereasy.com/site/SterlingVA2021

      Then click the tab that says TEAMS. This will take you through the Team registration process – be sure to use the email you have on file for your individual account with VolunteerEasy (as well as the correct email for any other adults you are adding to the team). Children can share your email address if you prefer, just enter your email for each of them and check the box that says you will be sharing.

      Once you are registered, you can click on FIND AN OPPORTUNITY and sign-up for the volunteer opportunity of your choice (even if you are already signed up individually, you will need to do this step for your team.) Once you are approved, you can set your team schedule.

      You will notice the next time you go to your personal VolunteerEasy dashboard that on the bottom left you will now have a MY TEAMS option. When you click on it, you will see your team information and menu options. To schedule your team, click MY OPPORUTUNITIES and then SCHEDULE FOR OPPORTUNITY. Once you set your schedule, you will see it listed under both your individual (PARTICIPANT) menu and the MY TEAM menu.
