Hello and welcome aboard as a 2020 Lake Hopatcong Foundation volunteer!
First of all, thank you for your interest or commitment to being a part of our volunteer team! This group of giving people have become more of a volunteer family, accomplishing many great things with us since our inception in 2012! We couldn’t have gotten to where we are without you! During this time, we collectively have been able to create a safer lake, blaze trails, host hundreds of students at our field trip and Floating Classroom program, clean up in and around the lake, garden and maintain our property, and transform the historical Lake Hopatcong train station into the LHF Environmental and Cultural Center… and much more! In order to take our next step forward, it’s time we track your impact!
Starting in March 2020, in an effort to have up-to-date information on our volunteers and make sure everyone who represents the LHF has a strong understanding of the organization, we will begin requiring all volunteers to officially register as a Lake Hopatcong Foundation volunteer (it's quick and easy!) and follow the guidelines in our attached handbook. This will also allow our volunteers a better opportunity to explore all of the LHF volunteer opportunities and for us to track your hard-earned hours and tasks! Below are the main components of our Volunteer Program for you to follow.
LHF Volunteer Orientation:
Each year the Foundation will offer a volunteer orientation. This year's orientation was scheduled for March 13th and 14th. Unfortunately, it was canceled due to the COVID-19 virus. The orientation slideshow that was prepared is attached to this sign up under “related files.” If you are on a mobile device click "SHOW". This slideshow will give you an overview of the LHF’s staff and board, mission/vision/values, policies and procedures, upcoming opportunities, etc. And as far as the question and answer goes, send us your QUESTIONS! We are going to put together a short video to supplement orientation based on what YOU want to know!
Register to be a 2020 Volunteer:
If you were on our roster for the March 13 or 14 orientation, YOU ARE ALREADY ON IT and have completed the survey! If you are not on the list, click the sign up button on the boottom of the page that says "I am on board to be an LHF volunteer" and take the quick registration survey included in it. Please note, once you add your name and click sign up, the questions will be prompted to you!
Review the Lake Hopatcong Foundation Volunteer Handbook:
It is attached to this sign-up under “related files”. If you are on a mobile device, click "SHOW". Please note, we ask that you do not sign up for any of our volunteer opportunities without registering here first and reviewing your handbook. Questions? Email [email protected].
Become a SignUpGenius:
Our volunteers are Genius! We are implementing SignUpGenius software into all our volunteer opportunities. This is how you will sign up for everything! All you need is internet access and an email address. It’s best to create an account on SignupGenius with an email and password but you do not need an account to sign up, just an email address! If you are reading this, you're just about there! It's a straight forward system, but we know how technology can be, so send over your questions!
Thank you! We look forward to working together to foster a vibrant and healthy Lake Hopatcong and its surrounding community. lakehopatcongfoundation.org
