Here are a few things you can try:

Frequently asked questions from your volunteers:

  • I can’t see the private event you posted.
    • Do you see <Organization Name> under “Your organizations” in your profile? If not, go ahead and search for our organization name under the “Causes” tab and request to join.
    • Note: Organization admins can also check to see if the volunteer is a part of the group for which the event is private for.
