All for Good provides a single search interface for volunteer activities across many major volunteering sites and organizations like United Way, VolunteerMatch, HandsOn Network and Reach Out and Read. By building on top of the amazing efforts of existing volunteer organizations like these, we hope to amplify their efforts.
Out of curiosity, I entered the search term "genealogy" (being a big fan of RAOGK and the like) and was surprised by the number of opportunities available, such as:
- Publicity and Marketing Coordinator for the Southern California Genealogical Society (producers of the upcoming #scgs09 Jamboree!)
- Assistant for the Old New Utrecht Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY
- And one of my favorites: A Genealogy Project To Remember! at the Saint Elizabeth Home in East Greenwich, RI which is looking for someone to help document the heritage of the residents of this facility.
For genealogical societies and non-profits in the genealogy and family history field, now is the time to get those volunteer opportunities posted, especially since All for Good is now on the scene!
