The Stories feature is an important tool you can use to share real-world experiences from the opportunities you participated. It allows platform users and new volunteers to read about the things that happen at opportunities.

This is a helpful tool for developing Public Relations, marketing, and journalism skills.

What qualifies as a story?

  • Short stories or status updates about an opportunity.
  • Description of a personal experience about an opportunity.
  • External links about your opportunity being featured in newspapers, magazines, or websites. Add the link of the feed along with a sentence or two describing it.
  • Creative art or medium. Share your story in a way that shows the world what volunteering looks and feels like.

Note: Stories are not reports. If you want to know how to complete a report after an opportunity, click here.
