Service Hour Tracking & Reporting

  • Report Service Hours at (the Get Connected platform).
  • Check out Report Service Hours to watch a step-by-step on how to report your hours. 
  • Check out a step-by-step video on how to manage/view hours of a group you belong to or oversee. 
  • User groups can be used to track group and individual service hours. An example of a user group would be a student organization or a service-learning class. Submit this form to Request a User Group
  • People who need verification of service hours should still have volunteer supervisors sign a Volunteer Service Log. We cannot provide proof of service without a volunteer service log. You can upload it to "Files" on the Get Connected platform for safekeeping. 
  • We "approve" hours that adhere to certain guidelines. 

Recruit Volunteers

If you are looking for volunteers, please use the below links to create a profile and post OPPORTUNITIES on Get Connected, USM and other local hubs' online platform for service. You can make opportunities visible only to certain groups or to the public. Volunteers can use the web or use the Cause Connect app to “search” for your opportunity, "sign up", then “check in/out” to earn and report hours. 

Any organization with volunteer opportunities should establish a profile with our local volunteer hub's Get Connected sites to advertise volunteer opportunities. Any opportunities posted on the below two sites will automatically show up on USM’s site too:

If you are a USM organization or otherwise unable to create a profile on one of the above volunteer hubs, complete this form for us to post a volunteer opportunity for you:
