Little Bites: Solutions you can snack on – Episode #9 Volunteer Management Software

Posted By Adam Dias, July 17, 2018

Estimated reading time - 3 minutes. Episode runtime: 9:56 minutes. 


Now on iTunes!

Sammy here—your Training Specialist from Volunteer Toronto. Episode 9 of Little Bites is here with more Solutions you can Snack On!

At Volunteer Toronto, we know volunteer managers, like you, are busy. If you’re looking to save time, on challenges from small to big, we’ll give you tips during every episode of Little Bites. Each month I'll welcome a different guest to talk volunteer management, favourite snacks and great ideas we think you should know about. You can check back here monthly for new episodes on our blog!

One of the most common questions we get is about choosing the right volunteer management software. After months of research, outreach and connecting with volunteer managers, we’re happy to announce our new free Volunteer Management Software resource, available now!

In this episode, I respond to questions from different volunteer managers about finding the right tool to meet their need. Listen now to hear about the various factors to consider when choosing a platform, from cost to volunteer numbers to software function. Plus, get my recommendations for a few specific cases too!


As I explore in this episode, you want to think about what you need your volunteer management tool to do, including:

  • Scheduling volunteers (and allowing volunteers to choose shifts)
  • Messaging and communications
  • Sign-up, applications, and profiles
  • Check-in kiosk and hours

Our resource will break down the expected costs and use cases, but don’t forget that some features, like website integration and data migration, may have an additional cost.


Do you have a pressing question you want answered on air? E-mail me at or tweet @VolunteerTO with #VTlittlebites. Did you know? Little Bites is now on iTunes!

Thanks for listening, and keep snacking!


As Volunteer Toronto's Training Specialist, Sammy Feilchenfeld develops and delivers in-person, online and on-demand training in order to support managers and coordinators of volunteers in Toronto’s non-profit and charitable organizations.
