I signed up on your website, what's next?

Thank you for signing up, we are happy to have you on board. Please remember to check your email, follow the links and fill in the RUF volunteer page. One of our volunteer liaisons will contact you shortly. They will explain the onboarding process. We are looking forward to meeting you at one of our next volunteer onboarding meetings.

I don't have much time, does it make sense to volunteer?

We understand. Yes, we are excited to have you onboard, everyone can help. We will try to accommodate your own schedule. If you cannot become a full volunteer (this requires at least 2 hours/week), you can still join us as an Associate Volunteer. Associate volunteers can join our monthly update calls in order to learn more about our organization.

How do I learn more about you?

One of our volunteer liaisons should contact you shortly after signing up. They can answer your questions, and we're also anxiously waiting to meet you at one of our next volunteer onboarding meetings.

When is your next volunteer onboarding meeting?

We plan to have a volunteer onboarding meeting on the first Saturday of the month, every two months. The locations will be determined and communicated to you via email and announced on Facebook.

In 2021, the dates are:

Saturday, July 3rd, 2021 - 11am US CT, 7pm RO

Saturday, September 4th, 2021 - 11am US CT, 7pm RO

Saturday, November 6th, 2021 - 11am US CT, 7pm RO

How can I help?

There are many things you can help with, starting with spreading a kind word and sharing our posts on Facebook (by the way, have you invited your Facebook friends to like the Romanian United Fund page? please do us a favor and do that now). However, there are most than 100 simple tasks that require a little bit of volunteer time, and we are confident we can find something that you can help us with, but first, we need to know you better.
