Hi, we are Community Hours

The Core

The core of our program is to match the youth to volunteering opportunities. Via our web portal, volunteers can search, select and book to volunteer at organisations which speak to them. Community Hours does the rest – we manage the booking, verify the hours, provide data to parents and teachers, and provide the learners with a digital recording and reporting mechanism. Volunteers that are registered with us are able to log all of their hours online and print certificates detailing the hours that they volunteered.

The Advantages

Volunteers are offered a range of volunteering opportunities. Everything is online – no more community service cards that get lost, no more fudging the system. Reporting to schools is tailor-made to facilitate each school’s specific needs. 

Communication is key

Communication is key to ensure that volunteering stays top of mind. We send out Ready, Steady, Volunteer – our weekly e-newsletter featuring exciting volunteering opportunities to all teens, their parents and registered volunteers on our platform.
