Join us as we celebrate our 21st year! Women’s Service Day 2022 is planned for Thursday, October 6, and it’s time to sign up! To be a part of this West Michigan day of volunteering and networking, please register by September 27.
New this year! If you’re on the east side of the state, consider joining the Southeast MI sister event! Read about it and register through this link.
How to Register
We’re again using online registration by Sign Up Genius, which allows you to choose specifically where and when you’d like to volunteer on Women’s Service Day. Volunteer opportunities are limited; they’ll be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Safety is our priority! We follow CDC and State of Michigan DHHS guidelines for recommended protocols
Please keep two things in mind: Most agencies require that volunteers be 18 or older; look for notes on the few that are available to younger volunteers. And because some of our volunteers have physical limitations, please choose options that align with your capabilities.
If you’re not familiar with Sign Up Genius, just follow these four easy steps:
- GO TO THE FORM: Click here to go to the WSD 2022 Registration Form on Sign Up Genius.
- CHOOSE YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Click on the green “Sign Up” button next to a volunteer opportunity you’d like to do. To volunteer all day, choose both a morning and an afternoon assignment.
- If you have a physical limitation and don’t see an appropriate task for your abilities on the list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We definitely have a place for you!
- Once you’ve picked your assignment(s), click on the big purple “Submit and Sign Up” button.
- SET UP YOUR ACCOUNT: Create a Sign Up Genius account (or log in if you already have one). This will allow you to get email reminders and other important messages about the event.
- Complete the remaining questions on the form and click the big green “SIGN UP NOW” button.
- MARK YOUR CALENDAR: You’re now all set for WSD on October 6! We’re counting on you, so make sure you add your assignment(s) to your calendar.
- And by all means, please invite your friends to sign up — the more the merrier!
Pleasenote that we may add more volunteer activities in the next few weeks, so feel free to check back and see what’s new.
Once you sign-up, you’ll receive confirmation that we’ve received your information, and you’ll be on an email distribution list for future event communications. Remember, we’re counting on you! We plan our agency projects based on the number of registrants, so please be sure it’s on your calendar.
