Along with being able to enroll all of your service year corps members that you recruit directly on platform, you can also invite the rest of your corps to join ServiceYear.org so that they can be connected to our community and resources.
How it Works:
1. 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 Candidates to Enroll.” This provides you with a unique link that you can copy and email to your corps members.
Please note that prior to completing this step, you will need to have created either a recruitment listing (for organizations with premium access) or an enrollment listing (for organizations with basic access). 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. Email the link to your service year corps members: See below for a sample template that you can use when emailing your service year corps members about joining ServiceYear.org.
3. Enroll your service year corps members: When your service year corps members sign up by following this link, a notification will be sent to the listing point of contact. At this point, you can return to your Listing Summary page to complete the enrollment. You can filter the view of "Candidates" on this page to show only individuals who have entered via your enrollment link. Simply click the "Filter" button and select the filter for "Pre-enrollment link."
To enroll all service year corps members who have signed up via the invitation link at the same time, select the the checkbox at the top of the candidates section, click the "Enroll" button at the top of this table, and complete the brief enrollment form to finish the enrollment. Please note that if you are enrolling multiple members at once, you will need to select the same location, supervisor, and start/end dates for each individual.
Emailing your service year corps members:
Once you've created a pre-enrollment link, you'll want to send it out to all of your accepted service year corps members so that they can sign up and become enrolled on ServiceYear.org. Below is a template you can use when communicating this opportunity with your service year corps members. Please feel free to modify or use your own language as most appropriate for your program when sending this out.
