Throughout the matching process, we'll show you profiles of Volunteers you can request for your post. Curious to know why certain Volunteers are being recommend for you to invite to apply to your project?

How We Select Volunteers

These Volunteers have been selected by an algorithm that factors in their skills, recent activity on Catchafire, completion of projects similar in scope and ratings from other Organizations they've worked with (if available). That said, since Catchafire is an open marketplace, we do not explicitly endorse any Volunteers in our community. 

Ultimately, we ask Organizations to vet their Volunteers by reviewing their applications and conducting interviews because you know what's best for you! As you review Volunteers, if you ever see someone who might be misrepresenting their background on their Catchafire profile, please let us know by sending a link to their profile.
