So you've just completed a project or call on what? First off, congratulations! Giving back is no small feat, and we're here to salute you. Read below for a few options and next steps for staying involved.

Spread the Word on LinkedIn

Many Volunteers like to share their accomplishments with their professional network. We've made it easy to do so by seamlessly integrating with LinkedIn. At a minimum, we recommend selecting the "Share on LinkedIn" button on your dashboard to post about the project you just finished.
