Along with being able to enroll all of your service year corps members that you recruit directly through ServiceYear.org, you can also invite the rest of your corps to join so that they can be connected to our community and resources.
What is the benefit of inviting my corps members to join ServiceYear.org?
Once you invite and enroll your service year corps members, Service Year Alliance will be able to start connecting them to resources, including The Virtual Companion and additional emails and updates to service year corps members and alums.
How it Works:
1. Set up your organization account and create a position and listing: If you have an existing listing, you can skip to step 2! If you are just getting started as a new organization, check out this article for a quick overview of how to sign up. Once your organization account is set up and you have a certified position, follow these steps to create a recruitment or an enrollment listing. For organizations with premium access, you can use a listing that is public or private, and it does not need to be actively recruiting.
2. Create an invitation link : Go to your "Listings" tab, and click directly on the name of the listing you are using to enroll your service year corps members.
This will take you to the Listing Summary page, where you can select the button for “Invite Corps Members to Enroll.” This provides you with a unique link that you can copy and email to your corps members. When creating the link, you'll just need to select the location where members will be serving and their start/end dates. You'll have the ability to modify this information post-enrollment, if needed.
3. Email the link to your service year corps members so that they can sign up: To become enrolled, your corps members will just need to follow the link that you send them, confirm that they are serving with you, and create an account (if they have an existing account, they'll just need to click to confirm their service year). Here's a template you can use when emailing your corps members:
Subject: Join [INSERT ORGANIZATION NAME] on ServiceYear.org
Hi [FIRST NAME],
I'm inviting you to join [INSERT ORGANIZATION NAME] on ServiceYear.org. This platform is hosted by Service Year Alliance, an organization that works to bring resources and opportunities to those doing a service year and those who have served. This includes The Virtual Companion, which will provide helpful tips throughout the year on how to live on a stipend, set goals, update your resume, and more. You’ll additionally receive occasional news and updates that Service Year Alliance shares with corps members and alums, you’ll be able to stay connected to the service year community when you graduate as an alum.
Just follow this link and fill out some brief information about yourself [INSERT INVITATION LINK] to sign up. Once you complete this step, you'll be automatically enrolled and able to start receiving news and resources!
Viewing your enrolled corps members:
When your corps members confirm their enrollment, you'll receive a confirmation email:
You can follow the link in your email to the "enrolled" tab in the Corps Members section of your organization dashboard, where you'll be able to view all of your enrolled corps members. You can filter this view to only show those who have signed up via an invitation link by filtering based on "Enrollment link."
