I’m an active volunteer at an organization but don’t have any approved opportunities on Vome. What do I do?

If you've been volunteering at an organization that started using Vome to manage their program, we're here to help you onboard!

The first step is to become approved for an opportunity. 
Being approved for an opportunity allows you to book shifts that are associated with it.

Here are the ways to become approved for an opportunity:

1. Submit a registration form and get approved by the organization

2. The organization assigns you to the opportunity, which bypasses the need for you to submit the registration form. 
If you believe that submitting the registration form is unnecessary, you must contact the organization to assign the opportunity to your profile. Once this is done, you will be able to immediately start booking spots to shifts.
