BGSU launches new platform for community organizations to find, manage volunteers

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – The C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement at Bowling Green State University has launched a new platform for community organizations to find and manage volunteers for their events and initiatives called BGSUserves.

The free, comprehensive service will allow organizations to manage their own profiles and connect with more than 15,000 BGSU students for volunteer needs. Organizations will also be able to create volunteer events and opportunities, communicate with volunteers and manage volunteer participation all on one platform. Additionally, BGSUserves can be used for event and volunteer management with existing regional volunteers.

“We are excited to announce this new initiative and grow its partnership with organizations in Bowling Green and northwest Ohio,” said Kendra Lutes, assistant director of the Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement. “As part of this new initiative, we invite any interested community organizations to reach out for more information and to take advantage of this new opportunity.”

BGSUserves is managed by BGSU and contracted with GivePulse, a national company known for its support of volunteer management and community services.
