General Interests


What is a General Interest?

A General Interest is a checkbox that can appear on an application form and in a person’s profile. General Interests are used to record what sorts of opportunities, events or type of work each volunteer is interested in becoming engaged.

Volunteers will be able to read the General Interest description when they are considering applying to your organization so it’s a good idea to word this a little like an advertisement. Why is this role important to you mission? What will the volunteer get out of it?
