Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

This feedback forum is powered by www.UserVoice.com. Your use is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at the bottom of this page.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Old version and new versions of the same volunteer opportunities appear on your site

    I have found that outdated versions of the volunteer opportunities that are on our site appear in the All for Good feed, along with the new updated version. This makes it appear that there are many more opportunities then there really are. One example - click on the following link to see both of the Photography Volunteer opportunities. They both take you to the same place on our site.

    • Remove Meetup.com listings from system

      It seems like most of the Meetup.com listings at AFG have nothing to do with volunteering and service. Look at the ones on this result page:

        Thank you for this. Meetup is one of our valued partners, and we are continually working with them to get better listings from them. That having been said, occasionally off-topics listings get through.
        Thank you for this.

      • Search by date

        I suggest you make this site more like the old site that was connected to serve.gov in that one can sort all of the service events by date and by length (one-time deal, temporary, etc.)

        • Have an option for volunteers to provide when , what and where they are available for volunteer work

          Once the volunteers have an option to list when, where and fpr what opportunities they are available , site can narrow down and present those options to those volunteers.This will also help volunteer organization to contact they volunteers

            This would allow site visitors to make themselves available for service opportunities, which is part of our road map, but we have some serious concerns around privacy protection and not engendering unusual behavior.

            • How can I post a need for a "mentor" for my child?

              How can I post a request for a mentor for my child? I have sons who want a college student or college graduate to give them advice on dating, help give them encouragement to do well in school, play ball (baseball, basketball, tennis, etc.) with one or both of them. I can't figure out how to post a request. I applied to Big Brother Big Sister about 6 months ago but they say they don't get any volunteers in the Lake Conroe area. Please offer this connection service via your web site. Obviously, the parent should screen the mentor before…

                  we list our projects in Hands On Tech, so our projects should be uploaded automatically but its not working for all of our projects.

                    We need the specific listings.
                    Please cut & paste the listing details, and also get the landing page URLs, as well as the search queries you tried to run.

                  • Include a Pro Bono Section

                    It would be great to see pro bono listed as one of the categories you could search under. Just as the categories give options for those specifically looking to tutor or work in technology, including pro bono as a section would help separate out opportunities for those hoping to use their professional skills for service versus those doing non-skills-based volunteering.

                    • Volunteer abroad opportunities should be listed last in local searches

                      When I search for opportunities in my neighborhood, many of the first items that come up are volunteer abroad opportunities; clearly not what I was looking for. Maybe this is happening because the sponsoring organization is in my town (I don't know if it is or isn't), but the listing should be based on where the volunteer work will be performed, not on the org headquarters. If organizations can't submit their opportunities with the correct info, they should be dropped.

                        • The URL reflects the local organization whose feed you're using

                          The freedomcorps.gov site used to include the logo and url of the local volunteer center whose feed it was using. Now when someone searches (e.g. Create the Good) what shows up is the url of the vendor we use, so people searching don't know that a local organization is hosting that opportunity and has vetted it. We're supplying your feed, so would really like credit in the intitial search list. Thanks

                          • verify the contact links connect to posted data, or at least contact info

                            several posted opportunities linked to sites "Not Found" and I was unable to connect or contact the posted organization.

                                  I listed an opportunity for NC and it is fine for Western VA and TN - but it seems to be listed for other states as well, such as OH.

                                          Also, I meant to add that I need ops specifically for MLK Day of service week and there is no way that I can see to pull this info. This was also available last year. Please respond with a solution ASAP. I need to get the info out to the community. Thanks
