Features of the VolunteerCrowd Service Transcript
Our digital transcript makes it easy for organizations to get an overview of your volunteer experience. After using our volunteer tracking features for several months to a year, we’ll create a transcript that puts all of your experiences in one place.
Using an attractive bar graph, the transcript shows hours spent volunteering, organized by cause. Cause areas such as STEM, health, environment, education, or hunger. Alongside the bar graph is a list of your top organizations supported or where you shadowed.
Organizations and colleges can also see the skills you’ve gained through your work. Volunteer coordinators endorse skills such as teamwork, positive attitude, problem-solving, leadership, and more. This can help you prove that you possess the soft skills and character to become a valuable student or employee. These details also show how you use what you learn to make a positive impact in the community.
Finally, the transcript finishes off with a timeline that shows your commitment over time. Additionally, stats such as how many organizations you’ve worked with, average hours per week, total volunteer hours, and other specifics are included on the transcript.
More than Volunteering: Highlight Your Shadowing and Internship Experience
Like volunteering, job shadowing and unpaid internships provide students with valuable experiences that helps them develop their skills. VolunteerCrowd includes job shadowing and internship experience on the volunteer transcript. This helps showcase your experience in a professional format.
For example, many pre-med students need to complete shadowing in the healthcare industry. Other students choose to job shadow or complete internships to test out careers. Yet, if you track and verify these experiences, you can leverage them for college and job applications as well!
In addition to our transcript, we also provide digital badges that emphasize your volunteer, shadowing, or internship experiences in the related cause area. Earning a badge signals a commitment to the field, as well as highlights your growing knowledge in the area. Post it to your LinkedIn profile or add it to your applications.
